    Þorn Revivalism is a non quadrant ideology þat calls for Þþ (thorn) to be re-added to þe English orþography as the 27þ letter. Common arguments include historical usage, linguistic purism, spelling reform, and simple aesþetic preference. Additionally, some þorn users also advocate for þe revival of Ðð (eth) as the 28þ letter


    Usage

    Without Ð

    Þ is used to represent both pronunciations of 'TH'
    The unvoiced dental fricative /θ/ as in "Thin"
    And the voiced dental fricative /ð/ as in "The"

    With Ð

    If Ð is also being used, þ only represents the unvoiced dental fricative, and ð is used for the voiced dental fricative


    Reasoning

    Historical Use

    Purism

    See also: Anglish

    One of þe primary reasons for þe decline of þorn is þat printing presses imported from mainland Europe, and especially France, did not have characters for þ, and so raþer þan create new type printers replaced it eiþer for y, what þe character had come to look like in handwriting,[1] or th, which is an approximation of the sound it makes

    Spelling Reform

    Þe sound þat þorn represents is þe "th" sound, which is typically represented with a digraph,[2][3] and since it is one character as opposed to two, some people support þe revival of þorn to simplify English orþography

    Aesþetics

    Some people simply þink that þ looks better þan "th"


    Praxis

    Þorn is still use in some languages in þe modern day, most notably Icelandic. On most modern software you are able to change your keyboard to one of several that supports þorn

    Windows 10

    Settings --> Language Settings --> Preferred Language --> Click on English --> Options --> Add a Keyboard --> U.S International (right alt + t) or Icelandic (/? key)
    Shift + Ctrl to swap between keyboards
