A modified version of Younger Futhark, primarily focused on standardising the symbolism between voiced and unvoiced phonemes.
relatively accurate runic alphabet and numerical system! punctuation is pretty much just made up but it works well with the look. enjoy!
This is the sequel to "Petermax's 3x5 and 4x6," with almost twice the number of characters. Many small changes have been made, especially improving the readability of the Vietnamese vowel characters. Various writing systems have been added: Tifinagh, Coptic, Ol Chiki, Runes, and Ogham. I also gave connected scripts a try: N'Ko, Mongolian, and Mandaic. Obviously these are not perfect, but I see them as a major improvement to the first. In this version, I was also able to add some extra Latin phonetics as well as some few Cyrillic diacritics. Some things are definitely out of control, as this program isn't completely compatable with right-left alphabets, such as Arabic, Mandaic, and N'Ko. If anything sticks out that should be improved, please let me know. Thank you, and please enjoy! :)
Just to test out the font contructor, and being unable to find exactly what I needed, I decided to try my hand at the younger futhark!
Capital letters are the long-stave runes, while the lowercase letters are the short-twig runes. They were generally not used simultaneously, so pick one system and stick to it.
There are many repeated glyphs, and this is because of how the system works; there are several closely-related sounds that share a rune. K/G, F/V, B/P, to name a few. (and don't get me started on the vowels)
I tried to match the latin letters you're typing to whatever rune most closely corresponds to it... from a norse point of view? As these writing systems are not a 1-1 match, it won't be 100% accurate all the time, and I'm also an amateur hobbyist from Norway, but I tried my best with what I knew.
For example, while I used ár (ᛅ/ᛆ) for E due to its usage in the [ei] diphtong (eg. in names like Einar (ᛅᛁᚾᛅᚱ)), it has really no rune on its own, and can also be written with íss, the I rune.
Compatible with most extra letters used in Scandinavian languages and Old Norse, and not really meant for writing in modern English, where nothing is consistent at all.
Update, Oct. 3rd: Fixed the lǫgr (ᛚ) rune. It is no longer mirrored. Not sure how I managed to make that glaring error, and I apologise to the thirty people who already downloaded this.
This is the Norse alphabet, known as Futhark (named after the first 6 letters of the Norse alphabet).
"A", "E", "N", "S" and "T" represent the compound letters, otherwise, NO CAPS REQUIRED! There's also numbers & a symbol for the SPACE.
Just runes, here. For letters with numerals, puncuation and Futhark ruins, see my "Modern Futhark" font.This is a clone
Runes for Family Use: User Manual
This font should be used with either caps lock or all lowercase, the former with serifs and the latter more realistic. As there is no runic "Z", typing one will instead provide stan, for "St". The numbers 0 - 9 provide other runes, listed below:
0: þorn "þ" "th"
1: eihwaz " ï "
2: yngvi "ŋ" "ng"
3: gyfu "/x/" "ch"
4: ear "ea"
5: kealk "kk" "ck"
6: ger "j"
7: os "o"
8: ac "a"
9: haglaz "h"
Just use shift on numbers for the caps lock version of those.
In this font, every letter corresponds to the same-sounded rune in the Futhark. Uppercase for the Elder, lowercase for the Younger. Extras have been assigned to runes with non-english sounds. Thurisaz is Q, eihwaz is X, inguz is C, and jera is both J and Y.
Covering the Unicode "Runic" letter set (from U+16a0 to U+16f0), except for the subsets "Tolkienian extensions" and "Cryptogrammic letters". Including Scandinavian runic numerals (number keys, U+0030 to U+0039). Additional runic punctuation marks, alternative glyphs, and private-use characters have been ascribed to free slots in "Latin Extended-D" (U+a7d0 to U+a7de), such as the magical ligature rune Alu or frequent (or, frankly, more aesthetic) alloglyphs for e.g. Kauna, Jeran, Sigel, Ehwaz, Mannaz, Ingwaz, Dagaz/Dæg, Stan, and others. +++ This font has been designed to meet the highest standards of runic aesthetics, glyph regularity and harmony, as well as scientific usefulness. As a specific advantage over other available non-FontStruct runic fonts, this font will always be equal in height to letters of other popular fonts at the same point size (Times New Roman, Linux Libertine), so as not to cause trouble with line height e.g. when writing a scientific paper.This is a clone
A pixel-style Elder Futhark runic font (plus a few non-Futhark symbols). WORKS BEST IN ALL CAPS -- lowercase characters bring up smaller runes or alternate rune forms. Please see comments for more info.This is a clone
