The language was further altered by the transition away from the runic alphabet (also known as futhorc) to the Latin alphabet, which was also a significant factor in the developmental pressures brought to bear on the language.
Old English was at first written in runes (futhorc), but shifted to the Latin alphabet with some additions: the letter yogh, adopted from Irish ; the letter eth and the runic letters thorn and wynn.
Also used was a symbol for the conjunction 'and', a character similar to the number seven ('7'), and a symbol for the relative pronoun 'þæt', a thorn with a crossbar through the ascender ().

 Sorting the letter ÞORN
A derived letter is one which is, in terms of its historical development, based on one or more other Latin characters, whether by some deformation of the character itself, or by the addition of one or more modifying marks or signs.
It is an additional letter borrowed from the Runic fuþorc and is not derived from any other Latin letter; therefore it is not subordinate to any other Latin letter.
The position for ÞORN should either be as a separate letter after Z, or as a separate letter after T and before U. These two are the historical options for all languages in which ÞORN was actually used.
