Thanks to a MetaFilter thread of dhartung‘s, I’ve discovered the online version of Zoëga’s Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic. Not a classic work of lexicography like Platts, but a useful one, and I’ve been wanting a copy for quite a while. Chalk another one up for the internet.


  1. This is really perplexing, I thought I have linked to the dictionary but apparently I haven’t. I have used the online version for a long time… And I have a paper copy too. It’s a neat little volume with quite a lot of info. If you’re looking for a classic work of lexicography, I recommend Cleasby-Vigfusson.

  2. Absolutely. Now who’ll put Cleasby-Vigfusson online?
