Nothing is Perfect


In the north we like to be special with our alphabets. :XD:

But not too much like those Russians and Japanese and all that...

The funny thing is that the English alphabet originally had the letter thorn (the weird p that Iceland is saying) but we got rid of it as it wouldn't fit on our printing press as it was incredibly tall. Because the character was right next to 'y' in the alphabet it was replaced with 'y' and the sound thorn made was the 'th' sound. Which is why you see a lot of signs that say 'Ye' when in actuality they are saying 'The'

@Mira-Koinu That's because those letters weren't in the original latin alphabet :)

In the Faroes we have: A Á B D Ð E F G H I Í J K L M N O Ó P R S T U Ú V Y Ý Æ Ø EI EY OY. Some people say EI EY OY are seperate letters while others don't count them in because they're just other letters put together. Á Í Ó Ú Ý have their own sounds and are not used the same way as in Spanish. :b

Pardon my being picky. When Denmark side something was missing, I looked awfully close. There’s no "J", "U" or "W" in there... so something was missing all along.
