since there's an f ligature for every other letter with an ascender do we need f_thorn and f_f_thorn? just wondering... or maybe just being silly, how often would anyone make a "ffth" sound?
Well, of course we need them! What, you think no Scandinavians have speech impediments? Seriously: I think it's the type of thing that typographically-sensitive Saxon linguists would certainly appreciate. I just don't know any though... hhp
Is the f ever followed by a thorn?
It can be (see in Icelandic names in particular), but there is usually a morphological juncture there, so I don't know if a ligature is proper. I haven't had time yet to check this in detail, though.
