It is designed for students unfamiliar with the earliest stages of the English language and provides a basis for further study of the history of the language to the present day. All the basic elements of Old English are covered, including nouns, adjectives, verbs, syntax, word order and vocabulary. Wherever possible comparisons are drawn between Old English and the present-day language, but also with other related languages such as Dutch, German and French.
