Icelandic is cool

Just spotted this over on OCremix:

I think that should be "veiðigyðja fjallanna" instead — Icelandic doesn't work like English, you (usually) cannot simply string words together unchanged to form compounds. (My first thought when seeing "Skaði, fjallið veiði gyðja" was actually that it meant "Skaði, the mountain may hunt, a goddess".)

I get that Icelandic is cool (and Old Norse even cooler, apparently) though. Why not try learning it properly? It's fun, and you'll speak one of the world's most eminent languages! :)

(Also — that remix was quite good.)
