Old English Letters

The old English alphabet contains only 24 letters instead of 26 of today’s alphabet.

Facts about Old English Letters
Lets examine some of the basic differences between old English and today’s alphabet:
The old English letters "u" and "v" were used as the same letter.
The old English letters "i" and "j"were used as the same letter however the j was used as the cpital form of i.
The old English letters "u" was used in the middle of the word and v in the beginning.

These three characters were used in the Old English Alphabet, but are not used today.

Æ(æ) was pronounced like the 'a' in 'hat'.

Þ (thorn) was like 'th' in 'this'.

Ð (ð) (eth) was just like thorn, used to represent 'th'.

Next follows the letters in the modern day alphabet, which are very similar to how we write them today. The pictures give illustrations on the vowels and consonants, as well as the letters we do not currently have in today's language.

The first letter that has a unique way is 'G'. The capital letter is written with straight lines, as coposed to today's curved lines. The 'g' however, is written like a 5, with half the letter under the line.
