[I did think about putting this in the current ‘Mixing Up Info’ thread but figured it would be better as a new general, apologies if the Mods feel otherwise]
I’m currently working on learning Old English vocab via the Story Method after a recent video from Johnny Briones mentioned the advantages of doing it that way. I am , however, ‘framing’ the story in an outside Journey. An example because I am making no sense? But of course: In front of house number one I have, running left to right and interacting with the building, 4 OE words/prepositions
Ac = ‘but’
Aenig = ‘any’
In an effort to keep this forum ‘clean’ I shall say only the ‘image’ or ‘story element’ for the first word is an Ack-Ack gun emerging from a butt…it goes, in terms of decency downhill from there or rather ‘uphill’ as the next image features mount Everest painted on the building.
The wordlist I am using is ordered alphabetically but the story would often be easier to compose if I were to change the order of the words.
So thoughts ? How important in your experience would be keeping the alphabetical order of things?
