[The Futhark and its further development in individual languages]
Ed. by Bammesberger, Alfred / Waxenberger, Gabriele
Aims and Scope
Runes are the oldest known writing system in which texts have been recorded in Germanic languages. The ordering of the runes, which dates from a later period, gives the origin of the term ‘futhark’. Like all the other writing systems, the futhark underwent far-reaching changes over time. The volume deals with the changes which occurred in the writing traditions of the individual languages.
