Hails!

You've probably completed our tutorial on the Gothic language by now, so you might want to do some further reading.

Joseph J. Wright's Grammar of the Gothic Language[edit | edit source]

This book was used as a basis for this tutorial in combination with David Salo's tutorials. The book has absolutely everything you need to know about Gothic to speak it with the exception of the neologisms, which were taken from Gotische Grammatik and conventions used by the Gothic Wikipedia for the formation of new words.

The third edition is public domain, so feel free to download it from either source.

David Salo's Basic Gothic Tutorial[edit | edit source]

David's tutorial was used as a partial basis for this tutorial. AS it is limited by the technology of its time, the tutorial will not present you with anything new, and it's not even a complete tutorial. Nevertheless, it might be a good resource for learning the Latin transcription of Gothic if you just want to use the standard US keymap. This would be preferable for Linux users, even if they might be able to get away with using the Icelandic keymap.

Sharpen your skills[edit | edit source]

You can sharpen your Gothic skills by visiting these sites, and either reading or contributing to them. They will increase your ability to read and write Gothic, and you will learn more about the people behind the language. The Wikis will give you the hardest challenge - writing, especially for Uncyclopedia, where you must build humour with the language - which can be exceptionally hard!
