mœzawana shuþa ya yer, Davidye beb Dustinye. Its nice to have a choice of fonts for the Bukhstav, and there's a pleasing contrast between them. Now I've been able to see Dustin's font, there are three small bugs with it. 1) The short (downwards sloping) and long (upwards sloping) versions of each vowel are combined into a single glyph, rather than being given independent glyphs. 2) The gemination rune doesn't seem to be there 3) There are no characters for diphongs - Khangaþyagon has five diphongs, [ae) au) eu) oa) oe)] which are written as ligatures of the long form of the first element followed by the short form of the second element. mœza - great wan - adverb-forming segunak a - 1p shuþ - thank y- personal pronoun e - 2p r - plural ye - topical vocative beb - and Pete
