  • Ogham is an old Irish script made by carving notches into stones. It fell out of use more than a millennium ago - but it's an interesting exception to a linguistics and computer-science rule that I'd never even realised existed. Let's talk about the Ogham Space Mark.

    An alternate title for this video was "The Space That Isn't A Space", but that's a bit more difficult to translate into Ogham. Thanks again to all the team at the British Museum!

      +mja00 an "h" in irish is an operation performed on a consonant, not a pronounced letter, in older latin gaelic scripts it was represented as a dot above the letter (in this case above the g) before the "h" was adopted for use in standardised typesetting and placed after the consonant. There is no "h" in Ogham. Even though the Úath letter is sometimes spelt hÚath it represents [j] never h

    The "Paraŀlel" Station thing is a bit different. The Catalan language differentiates "ll", which is pronounced like English "ly", from "ŀl", which is two plain L sounds in a row, a _geminated_ sound. like doubled letters in Italian, or in some pronunciations of the Ks in English "bookkeeper" (and also the Bs in "subbookkeeper" ;3 ).

    I feel like a mega-nerd because I already knew everything about Ogham.
    I learned about it when I was in 8th grade. Ever since I read The Hobbit I became obsessed with ancient languages and writing systems. I am also affiliated with one of the oldest Irish clans. So far I mastered cuneiform, all the runic alphabets (even fictional ones like Tolkien's dwarf runes), Ogham, and Ge'ez.

    "A space does not have to be a space!"
    This is especially interesting when you compare it to buddhist concepts of "space" and "emptiness". A space, the way we use it, IS something- it is a break, it creates order in the letters.
    In Zen buddhism Mu describes the empty space, which is itself NOT part of the text, but the foundation (the empty paper) on which text can happen.
    So it makes a huge difference if you have a text that is silent or if you just don't have any text. It was so important that people even used to write "This space was left empty on purpose" in books.
    tldr; I want the interpunct back.

    The very idea that divider between words has inevitably to be a blank are on a page seems to be weird to me. It can be anything, like special character or random ornament or whatever.
    Furthermore, that line in the script mentioned looks more like a carrier line, not part of a symbols. Like five lines of a musical notation are. Would you break the musical staff to denote rests?
