Font Information

Newest version, 9/22/2016. I’ve made some minor curve corrections in a few of the italic characters.

Dehuti /de.ˈhuː.tiː/, formerly Tehuti, is a modern font predominantly based off Dwiggins’ Electra. The change from T to D in the name reflects the actual pronunciation of Tehuti, as the T is actually Ṭ (D) in Kheimian. Also, given that this version has had significant alterations to its design, making it more like Electra, as well as quite a few additions and program fixes, it is essentially a new font; thus, the name change. Overall, Dehuti became what I had tried to achieve with Tehuti, i.e., a readable and attractive font that supports Native American and African languages, and that is harmonized in all aspects; this has to do with the small number of fonts that have the added support for these languages, and the fact that they are generally imbalanced in design. One such aspect to Dehuti’s harmony is my approach to the design of the Greek and Cyrillic glyphs, which have a more Latin-like feel, i.e., their lowercase glyphs are also uncial-based. Others are the additional characters, such as the hash tag, the math symbols, the arrows, et cetera, all of which are balanced with the lowercase and numbers. Also, the italicized a’s mirror the regular a’s, so as to be easily distinguished by the various languages that use them. All extra features, including alternate characters, et cetera, are available via open type tables. For those programs without access to open type, all characters are in the Private Use Area at the end of the font. Since Dehuti is a Unicode font, I will update it on occasion, so check back for newer versions.

Notes: 1) The modifier letters are set at the optimal height for text; they are not superiors, but numerators, meaning that if you need to add additional letters to text use the numerator table, i.e., for abbreviations as in 5th, 1ère, and so on. The standard superiors are set for math. 2) Dehuti has a large number of additional and alternate characters that can be accessed via open type tables or the fontlog (Dehuti-fl), which lists their respective code points.

Dehuti includes:

• Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic
• Redesigned click consonants with uppercase versions in the PUA, Esh, Ezhes, and Yoghs, the latter three of which are uncial-based
• Extended punctuation and brackets. For the uppercase middle dot, use (2E31). I placed the Teuthonista double bar on (2E3F). For those unfamiliar with the “reversed” question mark (2E2E), it is used for ironic statements.
• Most currency symbols, including the newest additions, such as bitcoin
• Fractions, as well as a ton of math symbols, arrows, geometric shapes, and pictographs with some alternate designs in the bold versions
• Latin superscripts, subscripts, numerators (with additions for modifier letters), and denominators, which are ordered as listed
• Proportional (lining) numbers, which are in the PUA, and are followed by the tabular styles of both
• Redesigned turned As, Alphas, short a (turned v), rams horn, small capital r, inverted small capital r, and turned w and y, which more so reflect their pronunciations
• Redesigned velar, palatal and retroflex characters
• Redesigned glottal stops. Their new design resembles curved 7s, i.e., they lack the stem, which is preferred in the languages that use them. The lowercase pharyngeal voiced fricative, counterpart to (0295), if there exists or should exist a use for them as case pairs, is (02E4).
• IPA, UPA, & Teuthonista (Latin Extended-E)
• Capital small capital I (A7AE), counterpart to small capital ɪ (026A)
• J with crossed-tail (A7B2), counterpart to (029D)
• Latin Chis (A7B3 & AB53), Betas (A7B4 & A7B5), and Omegas (A7B6 & A7B7)
• Cyrillic alternates for Macedonian, Serbian, and Bulgarian
• SIL additions, which start at F1A1: 1) Nine-step tone markers for African orthographies (F1F1-F1F9); 2) Retroflex D with hook (F20D), counterpart to (1D91); 3) Z with palatal hook (F234), counterpart to (1D8E); 4) ezh with palatal hook (F235); and, 5) a & A for Kaolib (F247 & F248).
