KoK Font: Dwarven

The Dwarven spoken today has changed little from the ancient dwarven language that originated eons before the advent of humans on Tellene. Dwarven vocabulary is comprised of short words with specific meanings; there is little ambiguity. Many dwarven words are under three syllables long, and most words are only two syllables. Double consonants are used infrequently, and double vowels are used sparingly.

When conjugated, all verbs end in a vowel, with the stress usually being placed on that last vowel. The vowel used will indicate the subject of the verb. For example, the dwarven word for "to run" is dorom. An 'i' on the end (doromi) means "She (or it, female) runs;" an "o" (doromo) means "He (or it, male) runs;" an "e" (dorome) reflects first person (I run). Plurality (they, male and female, and we) is reflected in the length of time the final vowel sound is held. For example, an "o" held for longer than three seconds would indicate a large number of people or items (they); an "e" held for a full second would indicate two or three people (we). Plurality in the written language is expressed by a series of backslashes () after the vowel. The number of backslashes also indicates the length of time the final vowel is to be held.

Dwarven is written from right to left or up to down.

Product Update (September 25, 2011)
When originally published, there were separate versions for Macintosh and Windows. The "Macintosh" version was Type 1 Postscript and reflected our background and experience on the legacy version of software for that platform (i.e. MacOS 9 or "classic"). Since that time, "OS X" has almost completed replaced that user base.

Significant typography changes have also occured in the intervening years. Adobe has depreciated Type 1 Postscript and OpenType has become the preferred font format. To address these changes, an OpenType version of the font has been created and the multi-platform version has been consolidated.

This file now contains OpenType, TrueType and Type 1 Postscript versions encapsulated within a single .zip file (the Mac version previously used a StuffIt file that today is no longer universally supported).

We hope these changes satisfy the needs of our users.
