Non-Germanic Languages

Resources on non-Germanic languages are on their own page.

Proto-Germanic

Wörterbuch der Indogermanischen Sprachen: Dritter Teil: Wortschatz der Germanischen Spracheinheit by Falk, Fick, and Torp (1909, 573 pages). This is a dictionary of reconstructed Proto-Germanic including rich etymological data.

This project reached a major milestone in April 2003 with completion of hand corrections of the entire text.

Gothic

Grammar of the Gothic Language by Joseph Wright. Scanned images and crude OCR'ed text of the entire textbook are here, excluding the appendix which was added to the 1954 edition and which is still under copyright. In addition, the OCR'ed and corrected glossary (p. 302-358) is available here.

Hand-correct the uncorrected sections (see "About the document" for more info).

Old Icelandic paradigms by Sean Crist. This is programming-oriented data and is not conveniently readable by a human. Contains around 34,000 inflected word forms, each tagged with the appropriate morphosyntactic tags (present, plural, subjunctive, etc.). Most of the paradigms were exploded by program; there are some errors. The main file is formatted to be easily read by program and could be used for tagging words within a text. Includes the data files and Perl scripts used to explode the paradigms. (Note: I hope that you find this collection useful, but I am providing NO SUPPORT for the data and software in this file) (First posted 15 Feb 2004)
