"aett (row of eight runes)" - if the word means a row of eight runes, how come the 16 runes of the younger futhark are divided into three of these groups, of lengths six, five, and five? And how can "Freyr's ætt and Tyr's ætt change places" when Freyr's ætt is one rune longer than Tyr's? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:14, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
The Icelandic word ætt simply means family, in this case seemingly a family of glyphs. Clarification would be appreciated. ― SvartMan (talk) 17:30, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
+The images of the Tent & Branch runes are from a digitalized copy of the book "Futharkh a Handbook of Rune Magic" of Edred Thorsson (ISBN0-87728-548-9) pages 12 & 13 respectively. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:38, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
