I thought I was finally getting fully comfortable with the whistle and then in today's class I was introduced to G♯ and now my fingers are again made of wood.
Slightly weird day today as I had a surprisingly painless wisdom tooth removal, but on the downside was almost killed by drivers in three separate incidents. Especially the guy going full tilt on red on a crossing when his view was obstructed by a bus. But muh cyclists amirite.
Surprised by the plane noise this early over central Edinburgh - these passengers got some spectacular views on the go-around!
@jbenjamint @michaelm happy to be of service. Gísli Sigurðsson's book on Gaelic elements in Icelandic literature is the classic reference, and he's made it available online https://www.academia.edu/22139401/_Gaelic_Influence_in_Iceland_Historical_and_Literary_Contacts_A_Survey_of_Research_Studia_Islandica_46_B%C3%B3ka%C3%BAtg%C3%A1fa_Menningarsj%C3%B3%C3%B0s_Reykjav%C3%ADk_1988_Reissued_with_a_new_Introduction_in_2000_by_the_University_of_Iceland_Press_in_Reykjav%C3%ADk. More generally, Judith Jesch's _The Viking diaspora_ is very relevant to the issues. On language, there isn't unfortunately a lot that's easily accessible; the most recent overview is https://benjamins.com/catalog/nss.26 but I wouldn't call it non-specialist I'm afraid.
Spot 1) the war 2) the summer holiday 3) the semester grinding me down
Physical out of office on, a couple more days before to go until the break.
On the second day of Chanukka my true love gave to me…A repository with data and maps based on the #LCAAJ
Pretty spectacular example of the 'needs washed' construction here
