Freelang Old English-English dictionary

Old English (also called Anglo-Saxon) is an early form of the English language that was spoken and written in parts of what are now England and southern Scotland between the mid-5th century and the mid-12th century. It developed into Middle English by the 12th century. Old English is a West Germanic language and is closely related to Old Frisian. It also experienced heavy influence from Old Norse, a member of the related North Germanic group of languages.
