The Norse Writing Center is a resource available to all Luther students who seek assistance in writing. The center is located on the main level of Preus Library, under the sign "Writing Help."
Of the modern languages, Icelandic is the closest to Old Norse. Written modern Icelandic derives from the Old Norse writing system. Contemporary Icelandic-speakers can read Old Norse, which varies slightly in spelling as well as semantics and word order. However, pronunciation, particularly of the vowel phonemes, has changed at least as much as in the other North Germanic languages.
