Germanic‎ > ‎East‎ > ‎


(Gutiska Razda or Gutiska Tuggō)

The gothic language is one of the only examples we have of the East Germanic language family.  There is not a lot of information on gothic, and most of the texts we have are translations of parts of the New Testament by a bishop named Wulfilas made during the 4th century.

Gothic for Goths:  If you're not interested in poring over the gospels in a dead language, you might want to check out Gothic for Goths, a series i started in hopes of reviving some of a beautiful old dead language... taking just a few modern liberties.

Alphabet & Pronunciation: Some tips on pronunciation that i might not have touched on in the above videos, as well as some more information and history about the alphabet.  Please note that there is a different way to pronounce gothic for nearly every student who studies it.  The pronunciation i give here and in the Gothic for Goths videos is not arbitrary, but based on my own years of research into proto-germanic and germanic linguistics.  Feel free to disagree.

Gothic Lexicon: This is by no means an exhaustive lexicon, but i'm trying to add to it the basic necessary words and any words covered in the Gothic for Goths lessons, including etymologies (or lack thereof) and complete conjugation of verbs as well as declensions of nouns and adjectives including suppletion.
