This wordlist is based upon old gutnish runewritings but also from the Gutnish Law (14'th century). The sources of old gutnish are from a considerably large timeperiod - from as early as roman ironage to late medievals. The words on this list are mainly taken from later gutnish, from about 1000-1400. Merely a small part of all old gutnish words that we know of is represented here, but it holds the most common ones.
