Publisher's description - LP Old English 1.0.1
The Old English language is at once recognisable and unfamiliar: many words resemble ones that are used today, but their meanings are not always the same, and they can take many more forms than in the modern language. Liberation Philology Old English helps you master these complexities by practice.
Wherever you have your phone handy, it is ready to drill you on Old English vocabulary and grammar with a continuous multiple-choice test. Your answers are immediately confirmed or corrected, and reinforced through repetition.
• Vocabulary: 149 levels, each testing the translation of ten words between modern and Old English.
• Nouns: Tests your ability to parse and decline all classes of Old English nouns.
• Verbs: Tests your ability to parse and conjugate a full range of weak, strong, and irregular verbs in Old English.
A further module allows you to review the vocabulary word-list and the noun and verb paradigms.
By sirtomas1 This app tells you exactly what it will do for you. No, it *won`t* make you proficient in the Old English language. That would likely take years of dedicated study (as it has for my study of Latin). However, one key component of learning any new language is the drudgery of rote memorization that comes of vocabulary building. In the case of an inflected language such as Old English, there is also the intimidating work of conjugation drills and noun declension paradigms. That`s where this cute little package really shines. It automates and expedites the rote process, and it does so via "temporal scavenging;" by building the process inside time already otherwise committed. Waiting for a pickup order at your local restaurant? Practice a few strong verbs while you`re at it. Standing outside the store, while your significant other is finishing an errand? Pull out your touch screen device and try seeing if you can remember what "cynng" or "swiþe" means. [NOTE: never use while driving; be safe!] Immediate response, gentle correction and endless repetition ensure you`ll eventually get it all and probably be seeing the thorn symbol in your sleep. Cheap, easy, exactly what it promises. If you`re a language enthusiast, especially for archaic or historical languages, you can`t go wrong!
