Icelandic Alphabet & Pronunciation
The Icelandic alphabet is a Latin-script alphabet including some letters duplicated with acute accents. It also includes the letter eth (Ðð), transliterated as 'd', and the runic letter thorn (Þþ), transliterated as 'th'. Ææ and Öö are considered letters in their own right and not a ligature or diacritical version of their respective letters. Icelanders call the ten extra letters 'séríslenskur'.
