ABOUT







Pétur Helgason

Icelandic linguistics professor at the University of Stockholm. Since 1989, he has made fonts for phonetic transcription and fonts for writing out Old Icelandic as it appears in Icelandic manuscripts. He also works with the Árni Magnússon Institute in Iceland, an institute devoted to the preservation and publication of Icelandic manuscript texts. With two other Icelanders, Jörundur Hilmarsson and Sigurdur H. Pálsson, he has made these fonts, which hopefully will soon be available for free download:

  • Reykjavik, and Akureyri: For the transliteration of Old Icelandic manuscripts.
  • I-E Font 1 through 4: For Indo-European comparative linguistics.
  • Stentoften: an advanced runic font.
  • Latinskij historik: A Cyrillic font that includes symbols useful for work in Slavic historical linguistics.
