Omniglot: One of my favourite sites

IF YOU CLICK on this link it will take you to Omniglot – a large site that explores a huge number of languages, alphabets and scripts from all the way across the world. And from outer space and heaven too – because Klingon and Enochian are there too.

The Alphabets page is also jolly interesting and includes a number of extinct alphabets such as Orknon (Turkic runes) and Etruscan.

A nice feature of the languages pages is that many of them contain valuable links to other sites related to a particular tongue as well as a sample text based on Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Rights.

There’s frequently a recording of the text in the original language too as well as links to fonts for the particular script. It’s a great place to hang out and browse.
