The fuck do you mean by that?
But yeah, eventually the soft th letter (which was called “eth”) went out of use, and thorn was used for both th sounds. We also didn’t have a w for a long time and people would just use two u’s like “uuent” and “uue”. We also had a single letter for the “ng” sound that looked something like this ŋ. So “kiŋ” was how you would spell “king”.
English was a lot cooler before the Normans got to it
