2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the beginner, 24 Sept. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: An Introduction to Old English (Paperback)
Having been stumped by Bruce Mitchell's Old English primers, I had hoped that this would offer a less daunting approach, but sadly I found it much the same standard. The book states that it avoids technical jargon but this is not the case, and the fact that the author is American means that the pronunciation guide refers to General American rather than RP. The online exercises and readings are not 'supplementary' but a core part of the book, and if you don't have the right sort of software you're stuck. There's one answer to all this - get one Stephen Pollington's books instead! They are ideal for the beginner and ensure rapid progress with Old English. With Baker you don't stand a chance.
