Gothic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Has been linked to uncial Latin G or Runic แ›ƒ (/j/) and even from a cursive Ancient Greek ฮž (X, โ€œxiโ€). Snรฆdal (2015; see references) favours the Latin origin, possibly invented after Wulfila.

Letter[edit]

๐Œพ โ€ข (j)

  1. The fifteenth letter of the Gothic alphabet, representing /j/, with a numerical value of 60.
