About this app

The Old English language is at once recognisable and unfamiliar: many words resemble ones that are used today, but their meanings are not always the same, and they can take many more forms than in the modern language.

Liberation Philology Old English helps you master these complexities by practice. Wherever you have your phone handy, it is ready to drill you on Old English vocabulary and grammar with a continuous multiple-choice test. Your answers are immediately confirmed or corrected, and reinforced through repetition.

• Vocabulary: 150 levels, each testing the translation of ten words between modern and Old English. A further 330 levels cover the vocabulary of Beowulf in approximate sequence. Interspersed among these are cumulative levels reviewing what has been learned earlier. Interspersed among these are cumulative levels reviewing what has been learned earlier (giving a total of 542 levels).

• Nouns: Tests your ability to parse and decline all classes of Old English nouns.

• Verbs: Tests your ability to parse and conjugate a full range of weak, strong, and irregular verbs in Old English.

A further module allows you to review the vocabulary word-list and the noun and verb paradigms.

I gave the matter a little thought before buying this app. I know it's only 4 bucks so I didn't mind that. I simply didn't want to be disappointed by a piece of junk. But, lo to my very great surprise and pleasure, I found this app absolutely amazing. I read how some would like sound to go with the app. What I'd like and would happily pay for is an app addressing other parts of speech, preps, conjunctions, adverbs, etc. Thanks, keep the good work coming.

5 stars, especially the grammar testing is where this app really shines. I would like to see some more complex OE words in future versions, the lexis currently being tested is rather basic. More poetic vocab and the ability to add your own items would be fantastic. So would a testing timer. Some of the use of macrons is inconsistent. Thanks to the dev!

Really useful, but I did spend a month or two learning the basics elsewhere. It does shine for testing conjugations, etc; but could do with a basic tutorial and a few bells and whistles. I am enjoying it and I expect to use it a lot
