Thorn With Stroke

? (minuscule: ?), or Þ (thorn) with stroke was a scribal abbreviation common in the Middle Ages. It was used for Old English "þæt" (Modern English "that"), as well as Old Norse "þor-", the "-þan"/"-ðan" in síðan,[1] "þat", "þæt", and "þess". In Old English texts, the stroke tended to be more slanted, while in Old Norse texts it was straight. In Middle English times, the ascender of the þ was reduced (making it similar to the Old English letter Wynn, ?), which caused the thorn with stroke abbreviation ( OE thaet.png ) to be replaced with a thorn with a small t above the letter ( Middle English that.svg ).

Unicode encodes ? as LATIN CAPITAL LETTER THORN WITH STROKE (HTML Ꝥ), and ? at LATIN SMALL LETTER THORN WITH STROKE (HTML ꝥ).

A thorn with a stroke on the descender also exists. The codepoints are LATIN CAPITAL LETTER THORN WITH STROKE THROUGH DESCENDER (HTML Ꝧ), and LATIN SMALL LETTER THORN WITH STROKE THROUGH DESCENDER (HTML ꝧ).
