Icelandic is a Northern Germanic language with about 357,000 speakers (Data of 2018) in Iceland (Ísland), Canada (Kanada) and the USA (Bandaríki Norður-Ameríku). Icelandic is the closest of the Northern Germanic languages to Old Norse and it is possible for Icelandic speakers to read the Old Norse sagas in the original without too much difficulty.
Old Icelandic was a dialect of Old West Norse.
Icelandic is not currently taught on the IU campus. Old Icelandic courses would be available occasionally through the Department of German Studies in recent semesters.
