Futhark Dothraki
« on: August 02, 2016, 11:31:18 am »
Hello once again! Back from a wonderful vacation in Florida and ready to post some more transliterations from other alphabets. Today, I'm going to do the old nordic alphabet known as futhark

ᚫ - A
ᚳ - Ch
ᛞ - D
ᛖ - E
ᚠ - F
ᚷ - G
ᚺ - H
ᛁ - I
ᛃ - J
ᚲ - K
ᛚ - L
ᛗ - M
ᛀ - N
ᛟ - O
ᛩ - Q
ᚱ - R
ᛋ - S
Σ - Sh
ᛏ - T
ᚦ - Th
ᚡ - V
ᚹ - W
ᚻ - Kh
ᚤ - Y
ᛉ - Z
ᛎ - Zh


Wow, Futhark translates very well into Dothraki. There are some exceptions that I consider close enough to the actual sounds needed for Dothraki such as the Kh sound, the Ch sound, the J sound, and the Zh sound. As well as taking a capital sigma for the Sh sound. Otherwise I think the look is perfect for Dothraki!

Here are a few example sentences in Futhark:

M'athchomaroon, hash yer dothrae chek, okeosi anni?
ᛗ'ᚫᚦᚳᛟᛗᚫᚱᛟᛟᛀ, ᚺᚫΣ ᚤᛖᚱ ᛞᛟᚦᚱᚫᛖ ᚳᛖᚲ, ᛟᚲᛖᛟᛋᛁ ᚫᛀᛀᛁ?

Anha tih krazaajaan, m'anha tih maf.
ᚫᛀᚺᚫ ᛏᛁᚺ ᚲᚱᚫᛉᚫᚫᛃᚫᚫᛀ, ᛗ'ᚫᛀᚺᚫ ᛏᛁᚺ ᛗᚫᚠ
My name means butt swarm

That's very interesting, and has, if anything, a rather distinctive look. I think I have seen this script before. Is it used for other purposes today? How ancient is it? Some of the symbols look like they may be borrowed from fairly modern languages.

Lastly, do you have Unicode code points for these letters?
Don't tell Khal Drogo I am here ;)

Futhark is an old, Nordic writing system found across Scandinavia, The British Isles and Germany on cliff sides, large boulders and old books dating from 100-ish to 1000 ce that was used by the Germanic tribes of the region. Many symbols were adopted from Latin and adapted to better fit writing with a hammer and chisel, with many straight lines and not many curves. However some original symbols do remain that were better equipped for the old Norse it was used for. This alphabet fell out of practice in Scandinavia during the Renaissance, but symbols such as the thorn were adapted back into the New Roman text and are still used in Northern Europe today.

The unicode is in the same order as before:

U+16AB
U+16B3
U+16DE
U+16D6
U+16A0 (zero)
U+16B7
U+16BA
U+16C1
U+16C3
U+16B2
U+16DA
U+16D7
U+16C0 (zero)
U+16DF
U+16E9
U+16B1
U+16CB
U+03A3 (zero)
U+16CF
U+16A6
U+16A1
U+16B9
U+16BB
U+16A4
U+16C9
U+16CE
