16.6 Old and Middle English, Archaic Spelling [V.26.c]

Old and Middle English employing letters not used in modern English should be considered as foreign and transcribed in uncontracted braille. For rules regarding letters no longer in use, refer to Braille Formats: Principles of Print to Braille Transcription. Contractions should be used in archaic spellings found in later writings unless their use would cause difficulty in the recognition of a word. For instance, if the ity contraction were used in the archaic spelling of city (citye), it would be read as city-e.
