Yes, but Dutch pronounciation is said to be the funniest... not everyone
speaks with a potato in the throat! And then i prefer Swedish orthography...

Old Norse... which I think is 99% the same as modern Icelandic. BTW, I heard
that Faeroese affricatizes /k/ and /g/ to /tS/ and /dZ/. Is it true? Strange

-Eyja- meaning -islands'- (gen. plur?) and -maal- -language? Cool, yeah!
