Alphabet

The Kynish language has two alphabets. The official and most widely used alphabet is Latin Script, which was adopted for the sake of simplicity and international dialogue. The unofficial alphabet is Runic. Runic is an ancient alphabet that was used to write the old Germanic languages before their adoptions of the Latin Script and Christianity. Although the Kynish are proudly un-Christian, the Runic script is used exclusively for religious and ancestral affairs. Runestones are erected in the honour of royalty and honoured persons, and are inscribed with runes detailing their lives and achievements. Runes are also used in divination,
