I redd a short blurb from the Wall Street Journal and chose it to work on writing in Anglish and gave it my best shot at Anglo-Saxon (Old English).

Note: I redd ... from OE past tense "ic red" with another "d" to be unlike the hue red.

I took out the Anglo Saxon for this post. If yu want to see that as well, go here: http://lupussolus.typepad.com/blog/2011/08/sun-blasts-slam-into-earth-anglishanglo-saxon.html

Sun Blasts Slam Into Earth

Two blasts of energy from the sun hit the Earth's magnetic field Friday and could unsettle one or more electrical grids, worldwide-setting systems or other fulyestre-broadcast systems, kenkrafters at the Sea and Luft Theod-Dight said Friday.

The blasts touched Earth's magnetic field in the build of fast-going "sunwind" and is blowing by the Earth, Joseph Kunches, a rume-weather kenkrafter with SLTD’s Rume-Weather Fortellingsted, said when asked.

Mr. Kunches said it is too early to know what the upshot of the blasts will be. "If it's a really big storm, it still could be ongoing [Saturday] night, but this kind of turmoil won't be kept up for long," he said.

But Mr. Kunches added, "It seems that the magnetic field is getting hit harder than we thought it would."

The storms are two of three large blasts from the sun's topside since Tuesday, as told by SLTD.

The thenung has told American electric-grid and fulystre-broadcast overseers of the happenings, which could hamper some broadcasts, huru those that are closest to the South and North Poles, Mr. Kunches said.

"The magnetic poles in both halfworlds are most exposed to loaded motes that come from sunwind," he said.

ken, craft, mote, and dight are in the wordbook (dictionary).

kenkrafter (ken+kraft+er) - scientist; ken (knowledge) ... word from OE cennian

theod-dight - national-administration; OE þeod (national)+dight (from OE diht - administration office ... pre-Norman Latinate dictare - dictate)

fulyestre - satellite (attendant); OE fylgestre (follower)

foretellingsted (foretell+ing+sted) - Prediction Center; could also be foretellingstow or foretellingthenung (foretell+ing+thenung)- Prediction Agency; OE þenung (ministration, office)

huru - OE huru (especially); great word ... It has many more meanings and needs to be requickened!

mote - particle

rum - space ... thought about: uterarum (utera+rum) - outer space, yterarum (outer space), utan-eorðan(outside earth), þrosm (chaos, a dark space, smoke ... this was my favorite even if it is a little more metaphoric). Rejected using the geþeode of German’s Weltraum (woruldrum or world room/space).

Solar Blasts Slam Into Earth

Two blasts of energy from the sun hit the Earth's magnetic field Friday and could disrupt one or more electrical grids, global-positioning systems or other satellite-communications systems, scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Friday.

The blasts touched Earth's magnetic field in the form of fast-moving "solar wind" and is blowing by the Earth, Joseph Kunches, a space weather scientist with NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center, said in an interview.

Mr. Kunches said it is too early to know what the effects of the blasts will be. "If it's a really big storm, it still could be active [Saturday] night, but this kind of disturbance level won't be sustained for long," he said.

But Mr. Kunches added, "It seems that the magnetic field is getting hit harder than we thought it would."

The storms are two of three large explosions from the sun's surface since Tuesday, according to NOAA.The agency has notified U.S. electric-grid and satellite-communication operators of the events, which could interfere with some communications, particularly those that are closest to the South and North Poles, Mr. Kunches said.

"The magnetic poles in both hemispheres are most exposed to charged particles that come from solar wind," he said.


Latinates

solar - sun

disrupt - unsettle

global - worldwide

positioning - setting

satellite - (attendant) - Choices are: OE - fylgend (fulyend)(m) or fylgestre (fulyestre)(f) - follower or observer / geneat (yeneat) - companion follower (esp. in war) dependant vassal tenant who works for a lord / gesið(yesith) - companion / geþofta (yethofta)- comrade, mate, follower

*āsmiþodmōna (asmithodmona, asmithedmoon, smithed-moon, or manmade-moon) (lit. "a moon made from metal") hat tip to Ængelfolc

communication - broadcast

scientists - Choices are: witcrafters (wit + craft + er following the pattern of Wissenschafter in German) but looks too much like witchcraft ... or cunncrafter/kunnkrafter (OE cunne + craft + er). Cunne (from cunnian) is the root of cunning/ON kunna “know” and kunnandi “knowledge”, or kenkrafter (ken+kraft+er). Ken is a nowadays word from OE cennian. Changed the spelling of kraft for evenness with ken.

national - theod (OE þeod)

administration - dight (OE diht - pre-Norman Latinate dictare - dictate) ... avoiding the use of the word dictate due to negative connotation but a gov't office does "dictate"!

touch - not a Latinate! ... Frankish - tokkōn, tukkōn (to knock, strike, touch)

form - almost kept this word - build

moving - going

space - rume (OE rum). Spelling to be unlike room, also from OE rum.

prediction center - foretellingsted (foretell+ing+sted); sted from OE stede (place).

effect - upshot

active - ongoing

disturbance level - turmoil

sustained - kept up

explosion - blast

surface - topside

accord(ing) to - as told by

agency - thenung (OE þenung - ministration, office) hat tip to Ængelfolc

notified - told

U.S. (United States) - W.L. (Welded Lands) / America(n)

operators - overseers

interfere - hamper

particularly - huru (OE huru - especially)

exposed - bared

charged - loaded

particles - motes


Words of Greek origin

magnetic (magnes lithos) - lodestone/lodestonic; magnet and magnetic are used by other Germanic tungs.

electrical (elektron) - the word electricity coined by Englishman William Gilbert in 1600; used by other Germanic tungs aside from Iceland.

system (sustema = syn+histanai=with+cause to stand) - setup or net ... hanging on how it is used.

oceanic (okeanos) - sea

atmosphere - (atmos + sphaira) - luft (OE lyft - air)

place (plateia, fem. of platys "broad") - O.E. stow and sted(e)
