Initially published in the 1880's, this short book
is a re-publication of the Anglo-Saxon Primer by
the late Dr.Henry Sweet one time Reader in Phonetics
in the University of Oxford.

I first came across this book whilst undertaking a
course at Hatfield College in the 1980's but this
recent edition published in 2008 stands up pretty
well in the light of the few primers available.
Others more experienced in the language than I
will no doubt have their favourite primer, but
Sweet still serves as a good basic introduction
for the absolute beginner.

The student of the Anglo-Saxon language, more commonly
called Old English in recent times, will find this
book helpful with pronunciation of those words from
the West Saxon writings, as the author uses the West
Saxon spelling uniform throughout.

Contains an introduction to the basic structure and
grammar of the language, with written examples.
Several pages of extracts from the Anglo-Saxon
Chronicle with a glossary.
116 pages in all.
