Old Norse would be neat
Me being the nerd I am.
Icelandic would make much more sense than Old Norse for sure. Not only do you learn a language that's somewhat useful today, but you get the bonus of learning to understand old Norse and Faroese (even if it is not perfect).
That would be interesting, but I wonder if there is a format for its original alphabet to be rendered typeable. If there is not, it might have to be transliterated into Roman script.
No problem, you would carve your replies in runes on small wooden slats instead. Of course, you'd also need to find an ISP to provide an RFC 1149 compliant internet connection.
There is a Unicode block for that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runic_(Unicode_block)
Plus additional info on using it: http://symbolcodes.tlt.psu.edu/bylanguage/runic.html
Oh that would be great. :D I love Old Norse (and all nordic languages like Icelandic, Swedish, Norwegian, etc).
Old Norse is awesome. I have a book of an Earl of Orkney's poems, so I had to learn the phonology of the language even if just to recite it. It would be nice to be able to learn what all the words mean, now. I think Icelandic is as close as it should reasonably come, though. Unless Duolingo were to make a dedicated expansion into classical languages.
