Project 1 - Part A
Following is my rendering
of a part of an Old Swedish runic
inscription. It is not exact as
regards details in shape of individual
letters but I hope all its
runes are recognisably the same
as those of the original.
The line spaces are in the
same places as the original's.
Your mission, should you choose
to accept it, is to:
- Transliterate the runes to
their standard latin letter equivalents.
This should be fairly easy since the
futhark of this part of the inscription is
- Break the inscription up into words.
Remember that the same letter can be
a part of two words.
- Respell the inscription in some
form of standardised Old Norse. The
inscription is, of course, in Old
Swedish but none of its word forms
are markedly different from those
of Old Icelandic.
- Translate the inscription into English.
