I know a guy who's into writing in OE, and he's constantly asking me for
the modern Icelandic words for what he needs, and calquing them.  Good
idea, but I'm sure there are modern English-Icelandic dictionaries to get
-- know there are on Iceland at least!  Alas I didn't get me one when I was
there, but the Swedish-modern Icelandic one that i got is *very* good!
