I am glad to hear that it makes sense to you. Any input from you
about the placement of dots or about the elegance of the overall
system would be much appreciated. Your background should help you
understand the phonological history which is being represented.
Jon: Everything is very nice. Showing it to my father he says it is
very exellent. He was teaching Danish and linguistics in many years.
And he taught me to read Old Norse and about runology. Also I read
Moltke. What you are saying is very big.
It is simply a further punctuation of the old characters. Moltke is
a fine scholar. When the inspiration came, I downloaded the database
of inscriptions and photocopied the originals for the oldest period
of the 16-letter alphabet. I soon realized that my runes would have
to be tall and skiny. Strangely enough, this is how the runes of the
oldest period actually appear, only they have no dots. I would like
to base the standardized spelling system on this period for a lot of
different reasons, which I am sure you understand. For practical
purposes, however, I do not really care how people actually decide
to pronounce it in daily use. It is intended to be printable and
useful to layman and scholar alike.
