Jer_E's Spelling[edit]

This is the spelling system I have used in wendings I have posted on the Anglisc reddit or discord. This largely based on the findings from others on this wiki and discussions I have read on the ƿord-smiðe board, but some are my own conclusions too. Thank you all for your work.
