Younger Futhorc (ᛡᛟᛝᛖᚱ᛬ᚠᚢᚦᚩᚱᚳ)

Younger Futhorc is way to write English based on Anglo-Saxon runes (Futhorc) devised by Nothelm Hurlebatte. One of the main goals when creating this system was to not deviate from runic precedent needlessly like so many other modern runic alphabets do; only two runes have been completely repurposed, no new runes were invented, and no characters were borrowed from outside of Futhorc.

Sample texts



There once was a man from Peru
who dreamt he was eating his shoe.
He woke with a fright in the middle of the night
to find that his dream had come true.



When Alfred our king drove the Dane from this land he seeded an oak with his own kingly hand.
