The Thorn

Questa settimana è dominata da Page-Turner. In effetti è una fonte ricca di notizie e informazioni interessanti. Qui parla del Thorn che è "an obsolete letter from the Anglo-Saxon alphabet representing the sound we now write as “th”: it looks like the letter “p” with the vertical stroke extending above as well as below the protuberance. In fact, a thorn looks pretty much like a thorn, as in one of those prickly things on the stem of a rose. You will not find it on your keyboard unless you are J. R. R. Tolkien". pageturner.
