Anyone ever seen such a book?
I knew that the double l at the end was pronounced tl in Icelandic, but I didn't know it was systematic (ie: fjalla makes fjatla).
The volcano itself is properly the Eyjafjöll, the Eyjafjallajökull being the name of the ice dome which caps it.
Edited PS: I corrected Eyjafjalla to Eyjafjöll in the sentence just above, Eyjafjalla seeming to be a kind of genitive. Am I right?
The real answer is probably to collect a few kilos of abandoned Teach Yourself books from charity shops and discard everything but the opening pages. Or rely on Wikipedia.
