Nubian Letter

TrueType Nubian Fonts !?

The Nubian Language is the common feature among all Nubian. Nubian of today talk the language but don't write it. Several scholars have conducted researches and studies on the Old Nubian. Except for one single Nubian speaking Scholar( the Late Dr. Mukhtar M.Khalil of the Dept. of Archaeology- Cairo University) all others are non-Nubian and their researches and studies are based mainly on findings. Dr. Khalil believed that talking the language itself makes alot of difference in verification of the Old Nubian Language and scripts. In his book "The Nubian Language - Writing in Nubian Script..?" which is about to be published in the near future (by Nubian Publishing House-faye - Dr. Shallabi and others -Sudan) there are answers to many frequently asked questions on this Old Nubian language. The script or characters he used are almost similar to those verified by other acknowledged scholars like Griffith and Browne.The Old Nubian Miracle of Saint Menas Manuscript (British Museum) is considered as the most significant finding in this respect.There is a set of TrueType Nubian Fonts for Microsoft Windows used by almost all scholars nowadays which I am referring to. The first manual on writing in Old Nubian based on the late Dr. Mukhtar's set of Characters has been published by The Nubian Studies and Documentation Center-NSDC- Dec. 1997
