Icelandic is a northern Germanic language descended from the Old West Norse dialect, so it is similar in some ways to Danish, Swedish and Norwegian.
But Icelandic is considered the "old language" of the North, making it the most difficult Norse language to learn, so students may need a little help putting words together in their minds.
Artist Eunsan Huh has come up with a clean and simple way to help students learn Icelandic by visualizing the combination of words used to create compound words.
Her Instagram account Every Single Word In Icelandic is becoming an invaluable resource for anyone interested in learning Icelandic, because her posts also include a spoken version of each word.
Eunsan on why she started this project:
Every Single Word In Icelandic is a pictographic exploration of the Icelandic language. I find an interesting compound word, then deconstruct and illustrate it as icons. The goal is to express how Icelandic can be deadpan literal and unexpectedly poetic at the same time.
