 Chapter Three-- Rask   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Perhaps the most brilliant of the early linguists, Rasmus Rask (1787-1832) made his primary contribution in accordance with a topic proposed for a prize by the Danish Academy of Sciences in 1811.
We also admire Rask for his efforts to learn language in the field; the data for his conclusions are largely the result of his own collecting.
Rask's perceptive examination of his data and the great preponderance of methodology that accords with ours in proceeding beyond that of his predecessors would justify the translation, though most scholars might with little difficulty make their way through the Danish original.

From the long journey home, Rask brought home with him a large number of ancient Iranian and Singhalese manuscripts which he had collected, and which have since made the Copenhagen Royal Library a centre for the study of comparative philology for many scholars in Rask's tradition.
Vilhelm Thomsen was the last important linguist in the Rasmus Rask tradition and like Rask he was eager to use philology as a tool for the historian.

 Icelandic alphabet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The modern Icelandic alphabet has developed from a standard established in the 19th century, by the Danish linguist Rasmus Rask primarily.
The later Rasmus Rask standard was basically a re-enactment of the old treatise, with some changes to fit concurrent Germanic conventions, such as the exclusive use of k rather than c.
Later 20th century changes are most notably the adoption of é, which had previously been written as je (reflecting the modern pronunciation), and the abolition of z, which had long been a mere etymological detail.
