After some periods of little activity on various Wikipedias and Wikibooks I finally have completed most of my other tasks, leaving more time for being active on Wikipedia. I already have had some activity on some Wikipedias, so some people might recognise me. Wikipedias where I already have been active include Anglo Saxon, Gothic, Cherokee and English Wikipedias, and the Dutch and English Wikibooks.

On Gothic and Anglo-Saxon, I am, of course, not a native speaker, but I learned the languages quite well (in my opinion) and am still learning. Please contact me if I make (repeated) grammatical mistakes or misspell words, because that way I will learn from it. Otherwise, if you just correct the mistakes, I may never know, and do the same again on other pages.

Other introductionsEdit

From the appropriate language versions of Wikipedia


𐌷𐌰𐌹𐌻𐍃! 𐌹𐌺 𐌹𐌼 Harðor (𐌽𐌰𐌼𐍉: Brian). 𐌹𐌺 𐌹𐌼 𐌳𐌿𐍄𐍃𐌺𐍃 𐍃𐌹𐍀𐍉𐌽𐌴𐌹𐍃 𐌹𐌽 𐍅𐌹𐍃𐍄𐌷𐌰𐌽𐌳𐌿𐌲𐌴𐌹𐌽. 𐌹𐌺 𐌹𐌼 𐌹𐌷ʹ 𐍅𐌹𐌽𐍄𐍂𐌿𐍃.

My Gothic is moderate, I am still learning, so please correct any (grammatical) mistakes and tell me. I am learning Gothic (and other ancient languages) as a hobby.

I created the first article about 𐌱𐌴𐍂𐌴𐌹𐌺𐍃, father of all Goths, because I think that the first of the Goths deserves the first article in a Gothic encyclopedia.

I am also doing a Dutch wikibook to teach "Gotish" at the moment, although I have not made any progress beyond the alphabet.

My Anglosaxon is moderate... I'm learning it as a hobby (among other ancient languages), so please tell me if I make (grammatical) errors.
