Fraktur, form of Gothic script created in the 16th century which increasingly replaced Roman type over the centuries in the German-speaking countries. In the 19th century it began to fall into disuse in scientific works, and in 1941 Roman type was declared the norm. Until that time the fraktur style of handwriting, known in Austria as "Kurrentschrift", was taught as the first style of handwriting in primary schools.
