This classic book on the Icelandic language was written to aid the military, the businessman, the traveler, or any foreign resident in Iceland. Originally published in 1945, the grammar gives reliable information on pronunciation, inflexions, and syntax of the language. The texts are partly grammatical exercises for the beginner, partly colloquial dialogues, or descriptions of customs and manners in Iceland—town and country. The geography and nature of the country is also discussed and elucidated with maps and drawings.

The book is quite comprehensive, along with graded reading exercises. There is a good summary of verb and noun inflections, and all of the words used in the texts are given in the glossary at the end.
