𐌲𐌿𐍄𐌹𐍃𐌺𐌰

From Kook Science

𐌲𐌿𐍄𐌹𐍃𐌺𐌰 (tr. gutiska, "Gothic") is a now-extinct East Germanic language, formerly spoken by the Goths (inclusive of the Visigoths and others), which is best known today in the form of codices containing copies of portions of the Ulfilas' Bible, a translation of texts from Scripture into Gothic from the Greek, the most notable being the Codex Argenteus. The language may be rendered in the form of a 27 character alphabet, devised by Ulfilas for his Bible, which features numeric correspondences, allowing for a form of isopsephy (say, 𐌲𐌰𐌻𐌴𐌹𐌺𐍉𐌽𐌺𐌹𐍃𐌹𐌰) to be used with it.
