Icelandic is a Northern Germanic language with over 300,000 speakers in Iceland, Canada, and the United States. It is the closest of the Northern Germanic languages to Old Norse. Many speakers of Icelandic are in fact able to read Old Norse epics and written word.
Throughout history, Icelandic has changed little in written form since the 13th century. Unlike with other languages, modern speakers of Icelandic can still read the Sagas and Eddas in Old Icelandic and Old Norse which were written over 800 years ago. The Icelandic alphabet retains some letters not found in the modern English alphabet. Despite slight differences, for the most part the English and Icelandic alphabets use most of the same pronunciation for both languages and remain similar to other European language pronunciation. This is known through the comparisons of the oldest written documents of Icelandic from 1100 AD to those of other languages such as German, English, or French from the same period overall.
