Otto teaching the alphabet in the anime[1].

Yurgenschmidt seems to use its own set of letters and numbers. The alphabet consists of 35 different letters while there seem to be ten different digits. The letters and numbers show certain resemblances with Latin letters and Arabic numerals.

Header.pngUsage

Usage of Letters

These letters represent the writing system in the world Myne lives in. They are used throughout the whole series.

Examples:

  • Myne is spelled: %M.png%%M.png%A.png%%A.png%I.png%%I.png%N.png%%N.png / M,a,i,n
  • Ferdinand is spelled: %F.png%%F.png%e.png%%e.png%r.png%%r.png%d.png%%d.png%i.png%%i.png%n.png%%n.png%a.png%%a.png%n.png%%n.png%d.png%%d.png / F,e,r,d,i,n,a,n,d
  • Lutz is spelled: %L.png%%L.png%U.png%%U.png%T.png%%T.png%Z.png%%Z.png / L,u,t,z
  • Spoiler: Rozemyne is spelled: %R.png%%R.png%O.png%%O.png%S.png%%S.png%E.png%%E.png%M.png%%M.png%A.png%%A.png%I.png%%I.png%N.png%%N.png / R,o,s,e,m,a,i,n


In the world Myne got reincarnated into, only a few commoners know how to read or write, which results in a high illiteracy rate. Myne desires to learn the alphabet so much that she manages to get her hands on a used stone slate from Otto. She then gets him to teach her the alphabet. This is very useful for Myne when it comes to signing contracts, filling out supply orders, and writing books.

There are notable visual similarities between the letters of Myne's world and our real-world Latin counterparts, such as:

  • The A is reversed: A / %A.png%%A.png
  • The B has a bump to the front: B / %B.png%%B.png

Usage of Numbers

Myne first discovers numbers when she visits the market with Effa. There she notices the wooden boards written with numbers showing the prices of the products. She eagerly asks Effa more about the numbers and learns that the world operates using a base-10 (decimal) numeral system[2]. Myne is very good at mathematics with Ehrenfest digits, even without calculators, which intrigues Otto and Mark. She also uses her skills when helping with Ferdinand's works at the temple.

Just like letters, there are notables similarities with the numbers of this world and their real-world counterparts, such as:

  • The "0"(s) are the same: 0 / %0.png%%0.png
  • The number 6 and 9 being the same symbol, but reversed: 6, 9 / %6.png%%6.png, %9.png%%9.png
