in 1836 the Icelandic journal Fjölni published an article suggesting revolutionary alterations on the Icelandic spelling. In next issues this was elaborated further but in the 1844 issue the matter was dropped completely. The reason being that the suggested alterations were met with harsh criticism to say the least. In this book Gunnlaugur Ingólfsson emeritus at The Arni Magnusson Institute for Icelandic studies, discusses the suggestions and the reaction they caused. This is nr. 94 of the Rit Arnastofnunar.
