Every Wednesday I publish a Wordhord Wednesday blog post for my $5/month supporters on Patreon. For these posts I usually write about a word from the past seven days on various topics. Where does the word appear in Old English literature? How is it used? What is its etymology? What modern words and place names are derived from it? Some posts include audio files of me reading 1-minute-ish excerpts of Old English texts, so you can hear how words are pronounced and how they fit into the rhythm of the poetry. Sometimes I’ll share the excerpt of an Old English text and with a translation.
Every 25th post is free for everyone to read, so you can get an idea of what Wordhord Wednesday is like without becoming a patron. If you like what you read, consider becoming a Goldgifa on my Patreon page. You can donate as little as $1 a month to support the hours I put into the Wordhord every week.
