Group Info

This group is for all those who are interested in the Old Saxon/Old Low German language from the mid-12th century. Old Saxon/Old Low German is the medieval and first recorded form of the Low German and Low Saxon dialects.

This group's gallery can also contain Old Dutch (Old Low Franconian) and Middle Low German texts, as there are no group for these languages yet ; though if you submit a deviation that is either in Old Dutch or in Middle Low German, be careful to put it in the right folder!

Go out, worm, with nine little worms
out from the marrow to the bone, out from the bone to the flesh
out from the flesh to the skin, out from the skin to this arrow.
Lord, make it so.

Really did you know it before???!!! WOW someone who seems to show few interest in it!!! I discovered this last year and for 1 year I've been trying to make it more 'popular' (lol), I started gathering grammar features and then made templates on (I made this all : [link] and greatly worked on this page: [link] ), I also supported the making of an OS wikipedia (that will never be created unfortunately^^: [link] ) and now I do mostly on dA!!

By the way I started my vocab ist in Old Saxon: [link] Will make a pronounciation sheet later ;)
