Here are some words I have got from A Concise Anglo Saxon Dictionary by J.R. Clark Hall. As part of a current piece of writing, set in Anglo-Saxon times, I am finding it pretty fun to scan through this dictionary from my University days.
Helleloc – Hell Prison
Heoruweallende [hey-or-oo-way-al-en-de] – Gushing with destruction – love this one, heoru is “sword” and by extension violence.
Heorudrync [hey-or-oo-drink] – Sword Drink – Blood!!
In some respects these words have the magic of german compound words. But they are pretty cool.
Unferth: Beowuuuulf, who you talking to?
Beowulf: Oh. Ah, no-one Unferth, just making some notes for my readers.
Beowulf: My readers, I thought I would educate them a little on our noble, lost language.
Unferth: Oh I sees, well then readers, though you are hiemings, (ey Beowulf?)I will himpian hisigfethera hinflede!
Beowulf: Oh God Unferth, you don’t need to add h’s to you word ‘like a cockney’, and my readers are persons of consequence actually! And why would you implant icy feathers filled with waters? Go away Unferth my audience calls…
Unferth: Alright, I’m off for my head-bath anyway…
