    Reviving Runic Alphabet

    Part of the soul of a people is contained in the alphabet. If we look at Israel, they use the Hebrew alphabet, it would have been easier for them to use the Latin alphabet, but they use the Hebrew one. The Anglo Saxon Futhorc or The Elder Futhark could be used by us, both runic alphabets reflect a Western European spirit.

    The English Language already reflects our ethnic soul, but the alphabet we use reflects the Roman culture. The Romans were the beginning of multiracial Europe. I am not very anti-Roman, but they represent a process of globalizing Europe. And so their alphabet does not seem appropriate to a people who prefers to not assimilate into the global system. Globalization is a euphemism for racial miscegenation.

    At some point our people should start to write in runes again, and make the runic alphabet be our alphabet once again. The Latin alphabet may have a taint upon it associated with the spirit of miscegenation, whereas the runic alphabet is more reflective of a race that is separate from globalism.

    I understand your nostalgia, but let's not heed to a fetishism of things past. The spirit of a culture does not lie in its alphabet, and reviving runic script seems to me very superficial.

    Then , just start doing it .

    There are some members here , who apparently use the futhark , as forum member 'velvet' probably .

    I once used Runes from Tolkien's Appendix of Lord of the Rings or Silmarillion ,
    to mark tools ,
    and think , that those were the "Dwarven" Runes .
    Those runes resemble the futhark .


    For every day's usage , it might contain not all Latin letters .

    The Hebrew Aleph Betha is lacking one vowel , I believe .

    The current Danish Alpha Beta is lacking the 'w' , and 'window' is written 'vindue' somewhat .

    The Russians speak the 'o' vowel often as 'a' , IIRC , and add an 'i' before the 'e' ;
    moloko (milk) spoken as 'malako' , and 'Lena' spoken as 'Li-ena' .


    I tinkered a little bit with ancient roman Latin , and it sounds , like it had been a rough language without precise grammar , indicated at the short sentences , while the German translation is 2 to 4 times as long , just because of added more preciseness .


    One could assume , that Germanics were lacking many words and letters ,
    and that their vocabulary and grammar was minimalist and rough and unprecise , too .

    I would suggest to enscribe as guest listener at an university , that teaches old languages , when retiring , and go from there on , and try to de-compile old writings , and develop an own vocabulary , letters , ciphers , numbers , in the hope , that it could resemble some local dialect or slang of some tribe at those times .
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    The runes in Lord of the Rings are not actual runes.
    They are the Cirth alphabet made up by Tolkien.

    In The Hobbit they are represented by actual runes.

    I wonder how limiting Old Norse was compared to proto-Germanic, because the Elder Futhark has more characters than the Younger Futhark.
