Why did english discard the letters Æ (ash), Ð (eth), & Þ (thorn)?
If we use Þ or Ð instead of "Th" it would use up less computer byte, less ink, less hand writing time, space and energy--it all adds up! And we'd have choice of either of the two letters, instead of just one couple. I think Æ speaks for itself--it has an uprightness and statliness about it that adds nice complement.
We should keep them...not throw them away...
What do you think?
