There is no J in Latin

Mon Sep 03, 2012 1:57 pm

So, I'm a little curious about the spelling choice. My Latin dictionary for J simply says, "See I".

Game from french devs, company named AGEod. So, I can figure the J, as in french AGE is spoken the same as AJE.

There is no J in Latin


Yet Julius Caesar is always spelt with a "J". :)

Nobody complains about that. :)

Indeed :thumbsup: ... plus making an I as in old Latin would have meant an acronym being AIE.......which we cannot use for many reason (and not only copyright of Agence Internationale de l'Energie)....so let's close the matter.
Thanks
