Beowulf in Gothic -- A Snippet

Post by Lambuzhao » Sat 18 Nov 2017, 16:22

from 2003 (!)

Gosh I wish I had more time.

Prolly a dozen or more grammar-related errors.

Still, enjoy.

Faírinōs usfullida haljáis fijands
Was sa gramida gasts Grandila háitans
Mareins markē bitiuhands in swumfslam swinþnōda
Sáiw jah kelikn skōhslakunis aírþa
Wáinahs waír was ƕeilái wardja 105
fram þammei imma Gaskapjands gawargida
in Kainis kunja þata maúrþr frawáit
sa áiweina Frauja þisei is Abel slōh
ni galeikáida imma sō haifsts

for reference, is 105 the line number? I'd like to consult either the original or a MnE translation — I'm having difficulty parsing some of this, but it's probably mostly just because my grammar is rusty.
inida elish, er-jīse pan.
sheb olnezī, on zūl kaid
nyer maudem? māzeye gejegura,
ib-zhiyorī aur mādaresh; kep panī weram.
e pel zherokareshī, onyek ne rād:
izholen tekab. yerogim nyer.

(semar pel, i.1-6)

Yes.

By all means parse away.

Be firm but gentle yet firm with constructive criticisms.

Be mute yet tongueless with destructive criticisms, or I will beseech Sts. Wulfilas & Dismas to damn your soul into a sinfully juicy shaddock on the Taurange Tree in gaiainnan funins.

Honestly, looking back, would this tale even have the slightest rhizoid or even symbiotic hyphæ in Varangian and/or Galician chernozem(s)? [:S]
This might be a more strictly Ingvæonic rock opera of sorts. :wat:

Still, I enjoyed it while doing it.
I have more globs … somewheres …
