Ogham is an Early Medieval alphabet used to write the early Irish language (in the so-called “orthodox” inscriptions), and later the Old Irish language (scholastic ogham). According to the High Medieval Bríatharogam, names of various trees can be ascribed to individual letters. According to the Damian McManus, the “Tree Alphabet” idea dates to the Old Irish period. Its origin is probably due to the letters themselves being called feda “trees”, or nin “forking branches” due to their shape.
The Ogham Trees have been objects of veneration, sources of wisdom, inspiration and medicine for unknown centuries. Each of the twenty British native trees and shrubs has particular powers of its own which may be useful in improving any magical rituals. Each has its own moon cycle span of twenty-eight days and an Ogham letter symbol. There is no definitive proof about the origin of this alphabet, but it can be certain that the Druids, in the late Iron Age and beyond - last century BC and the first and second centuries AD - used this system in the form of a calendar, based on the thirteen cycles of the Moon, and the celebration of the four Solstices. The word ‘Druid’ itself comes either from the Celtic name for the oak - 'duir’ - or from the Welsh - 'derwydd’ - meaning oak-seer.
*just my views of what placements give rise to these traits. ‘any’ means any placement under that signed or element stated. ‘dominant’ means either the dominant sign mentioned or most placements of that sign. K, X and Z had no words :(
You probably know, that Russians do not write the way cyrillic letters are printed. Knowing and using it will help you read Russian handwriting and write easier and faster yourself. But if you are not going to write a lot in Russian, or having a real pen pal or going studying in Russia, learning Russian handwriting will probably be useless for you, so decide for yourself, wheather you need it or not. You just have to know, that the eyes of Russian people start to bleed when they see foreigners write the letter Д this way. Here I wrote down the way Russians write letters:
It doesn’t look that different at the first site except that Д looks more like D and you are not going to confuse Л with П anymore, but there are other difficulties:
