Oak, and ash, and thorn

While there isn’t an abandoned letter called ‘oak’, there’s one called ‘ash’, that ligature (conjoined) ‘a’ and ‘e’ you see in old-ish British English spellings like “hæmorrhage”. 

It was originally æsc in Old English (Anglo-Saxon) but still pronounced ‘ash’ or ‘eysh’, according to my Uni tutor, though I never asked how he knew - based on rhyme, maybe, or a private time machine. 

There’s another letter, ‘eth’, which is the d with curved crossbarred stem - ð - usually written as plain ’d’ though in reality pronounced like the ‘th’ in ‘with’. 

Thus the chief Norse god isn’t Odin but Othin.
