Certain topics like agriculture, weapons, weather and other everyday words for a 5th century North European are understandable.

More advanced topics were sometimes modeled after other Germanic languages words, but these are less common.

I can easily read Dutch since I learned sometimes the basic pronunciation which is very different even though the words are very similar to spoken Low Saxon (Dutch wa actually a Low Franconian dialect at he beginning)
Low Saxon really is closer to the other Germanic languages than High German. Sadly is missing here completely.

I can understand some Frisian, since there were lots of Frisians in my high school. Danish is also spoken here a lot and quiete easy to understand when you pick it up early. Swedish and Nynorsk were a bit harder, but after just half a year of language training, I feel I'm understanding half of it. Bokmal was easy after three years of Danish in school.
I never really heard Icelandic and Faroese, so I can't say anything about it. All I know is that they
>>
>>53975430

>>53975707
i understood that perfectly


as a dutch speaker i can understand written german pretty well

but understanding scandinavian is difficult unless you know in which ways the languages differ.

what i mean is for example (as a dutch speaker) i can memorise ways in which swedish spelling is different from dutch spelling and puzzle out vocabulary from there.

id say knowing a couple of simple 'regular differences' between languages i can understand about 65% of written german and maybe 35% of written scandinavian
>>
>>53976349
Yes, knowing all the language chages really makes it easier. That was the first thing I figured out as a child when I had to learn both Standard High German and Low Saxon.

It's only hard because you use a word from the wrong language group. All other Germanic languages use a variety of Tysk/Deutsch

old english is somewhat understandable sometimes, middle english is bretty easy as long as it isn't poetry. It's basically modern English with some more verb and noun endings.

Dutch about 90% of a given random, not intentionally complicated/archaic/slang word using sentence

Certain simpler phrases and certain words can be understood. The more "old" the subject matter the more likely you'll understand as it's more likely the word/phrase has a common root.

Then again Swedish has a lot of loanwords from both low and high German so there's that too.

That's not completely true. Along the borders they did speak Frankish until relatively recently, and in some fringe small villages, they still do.

But France had a very effective unifying language policy that basically wiped out the ones who did remain who spoke Frankish or other Germanic dialects
>>
>>53978221
yeah because after the unification of the 2nd Reich the Prussians introduced Standarddeutsch.Before this happened dutch and flemish were just considered one of many german dialects.
>>
>>53978221
Afrikaans and Dutch are fully understandable. Afrikaans is closer to Standard Dutch than some of the Low Saxon and Middle-Franconian dialects.

Netherlands were so successful back when that they completely overrid any term. They owned the Dutch term as a result.

It might be that I'm more familiar with German words but I feel I get more of the gist of German than say Swedish
>>
>>53978482
Yeah, but Afrikaans is easier to understand to an English speaker because it drops a lot of conjugations and cases that are present in Dutch but are absent in English.
>>
>>53978649
Hola, mi nombre es Juan y soy un soldado en la armada

;)
>>
>>53978649
Isn't that just because Swedes spell much more differently than English people do?

But I don't know how that is pronounced.
>>
>>53978439
I'm aware, but I got the feeling he meant why not all of France speaks Frankish today.

On a similar note it's quite interesting that this didn't occur in England. There the "natives" adopted the Saxon tongue instead of the Anglo-Saxons adopting the local language.
>>
>>53978649
That Swedish example is one way to say it, but the most common would be in line with the other two. In Norwegian it would be like this:
Hallo, mitt navn er Olav og jeg er en soldat i armeen.
>>
>>53978649
Hej, mitt namn är Sven och jag är en soldat i armén.
Easier now?

>>53976981
We read it in old English in high school the German exchange student got a modern English version. I was reprimanded for saying she could probably understand old English better.

Yeah it's quite possible that spoken Swedish is easier for an English speaker than spoken German

V2 is very rare in languages outside Germanic family. My native language, Kashmiri, has it, but it is closer to Yiddish or Icelandic in syntax, or so I've heard.

>Hallo , mein Name ist Fritz und ich bin ein Soldat in der Armee
>Hallo, mijn naam is Frits en ik ben een soldaat in het leger
Literally the same language.

>>53978792
That's because the force was an immigration force bringing in large numbers, that built around a central region.

Instead of a conquering party that ruled as a noble elite, it was a mass immigration. When 50% of your population in addition to the ruling class speaks one language, the Kings and 50% don't have to adapt, especially if you wipe out the immediate area of natives, and then spread out and slowly expand your base.

Exact same word order and almost the same words.
>>
>>53978611
Yeah, it's likely he was a nobleman, especially if they had a "von" in the name at one point. Leaving to Germany was the only chance to survive.
>>
>>53978873
You're not going to understand any of them.
>>
>>53978956
Highest estimate I've read puts the Saxons at at most 1/5 of the entire population of the different regions that would later become England.

But I think you have a point. Most of the Saxons congregated in one place and slowly neighbouring non-Germanic communities adapted.

>>53979000
Can confirm that Gothic was closer to Norse than to the West-Germanic languages. A pity it doesn't exist anymore.
>>
Started learning Swedish today. It's pretty easy morphologically so thank fuck for that. Those /i/ and /y/ sounds will be the death of me.
>>
>>53978603
You may have missed his point. We used to call you Dutch too but when they kicked Spain the fuck out we remained calling them Dutch and for someone reason we decided to call you German to differentiate. Our Pennsylvania Dutch country is mostly German ethnically not Dutch.
>>
>>53979199
I think the estimate is 30% right now, but that's all of Britain. When they got there, they concentrated along the west coasts. The proportion of "Saxon genetics" is higher along there as well which fits with the theory. Even if it were as low as 1/5 though, that's pretty large compared to a simple conquering force that establishes itself as the high class.
>>
>>53979254
Other way around probably.

Or, as some Pole has theorized, Germanized Balts that later got Slavcized(and then, some of them) regermanized.
>>

>>
>>53979097
what do baltics think about germans nowadays only as eu partners?
Or as something more because most of your history has something to do with germans.
In Germany most people dont even know about germans in Lith/Estii. which is pretty sad.
yeah they were not allowed to keep the "von" in the name because they had no proof with them like an Ahnennachweis so they had a stick with a pretty generic name.

Faroese is the most beautiful poetic germanic language.

The big question in regards to Saxons:

Which of the Norse gods is Saxnot the equivalent of? Frej? Tyr? Is he an unique Saxon deity?

tbqh English is one of the most descriptive of the Germanic family as a result of the Norman conquests, we took the wide variety of Latin words and Germanized them creating a hybird language that is still able to grow as we absorb new cultures and languages and therefore, loanwords. Sure, we can't make 40 letter long words based off of grammar rules but we can make some good poetry.

My private theory is that latin "German" is actually a loan from Germanic heermann/härsman, a word for warrior. Compare to the the name Herman.
>>
>>53979636
I think Saxon groups had been raiding/browsing the coast line of Britain for awhile. If I recall correctly, after Rome abandoned the British Isles for good, Britons were in dire need of protection from other groups on the isles, with no Roman army to defend them, and soinvited the Saxons in for protection in exchange for food and land. Then the Saxon warriors/kings/whoerever was in charge invited some friends, and of course after the population boomed enough with enough Saxon migrants, they couldn't be satisfied with just the small land they got, they went ahead and took the whole thing. I'd guess the promises of free land and war being lucrative had a lot to do with it.

>The remaining Lugi/Vandals mixed with the migrating Venedi a century later, and the Slovenes along with the Antes became the dominant tribes and forced their language and culture upon the rest of the Vandals and Venedi, which since then are known as Slavs (from slovo - Slovenci). Latvians and Lithuanians are Venedi wwhich did not "Slovenicize".

So Venedi were Balts who mixed with remaining Vandals(who apparently cremated their dead which apparently is not a Germanic thing except that the Norse sometimes cremated their dead but oh well) who in turn thanks to this cremating thing is theorized to have been germanized and then they all got collectively slavicized by the big Slovenian cock.

In einem Rechtsgutachten, das im Auftrag der Bayerischen Staatsregierung 1991 erstellt wurde, urteilte der UN-Völkerrechtsberater Felix Ermacora: „Die Vertreibung der Sudetendeutschen aus der angestammten Heimat von 1945 bis 1947 und die fremdbestimmte Aussiedlung nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg widersprach nicht nur der in der Atlantik-Charta und dann in der Charta der UN verheißenen Selbstbestimmung, sondern die Vertreibung der Sudetendeutschen ist Völkermord und Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit, die nicht verjährbar sind.“

That seems logical. Of course, Snorri could also have misunderstood some local name for the same deity and reincoporated them in the pantheon. Norse mythology survived untill the twelfth century, right? In the Netherlands it was extinct by the eight, after the conversion of Aldgisl's son Redbad and the Frankish conquest of Frisia.

Pretty sure it was not just Snorre fucking up, the distinction between Frigg and Freja is very clear. And I think it's attested in runestones too.

Norse mythology remained "alive" up until 13th century in Sweden(though by then it was heavily persecuted) and small fragments survived of it basically into our days(tales of Oden and Thor specifically).

Why are they bullshit concepts? The languages are very very different and ethnogenesis is in very distant locations.

Just because at the borders the lines got blurry doesn't mean the groups aren't distinct entities.

Dutch is by far the easiest language to understand for Germans, especially in written form you can understand most of it without any training in the language.
English is probably the least similar though I don't know how hard it would be to understand without training since everyone learns it in school.

If you're an English speaker, it's only really possible if you've had some experience in another Germanic language. English alone doesn't help us that much to understand them.

For example, when I only knew English, I couldn't understand a lick of Dutch. When I started studying German, Dutch (and Frisian to some extent) became pretty easy to understand.

The land is indwelt in midmost Northamericksland, where its forty-eight linked folkdoms and Washington, C.S. (Columbo Shire), the headtown shire, lie between the Great Frithly and Even Seas, landlinked to Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. The folkdom of Shoulderland is in the northwest of the landstretch, with Canada to the east and Russland to the west across the Bering Narrowing. The folkdom of Firelands is an ilandcluster in the mid-Great Frithly Sea. Americksland also holds a few landstocks in the Great Frithly and Caribish Seas. Americksland is one of the world's most heathenly sundry and manibreeding folklands, the outcome of great incomings from many rikes. The earthlore and weather of the Banded Folkdoms is also sundry.

Anglish is stupid. There are a lot of words that we lost from English because they were replaced by French ones, by removing the French words and not reviving the original English words you are left with a lacking vocabulary.

Take "folkdom". The Old English word "rīce" (pronounced reach-uh, survives in "bishopric", cognate with German "reich") would be a much more applicable translation of "state".

I should also add, the torrent I got it from had a ton of torrents of like every fucking language. If you want, I could upload the PDF or link you the torrent or something.

after reading a bit of it, I just started reading and shit trying to get the meaning of stuff. Not a very efficient way of learning, but fun. I used wiktionary and http://www.bosworthtoller.com/ to look up words and stuff, and just googled anything else I didn't get.
