"separation between font- and backend": "font" instead of "front".

"(an UNICODE or index)": "an" instead of "a". (U is a vowel, but its
pronounciation starts with a consonant sound. The pronounciation decides
whether a(n).)

"A node can have a subtype to that it": "to" instead of "so".

"with an node": "an" instead of "a".

"(here we do that with [a]": Missing closing parenthesis.

"but if you need a dozen you might wonder what you’re doing. .": Two
consecutive full stops.

"and expands it content": "it" instead of "its".

"But this kind of expansion it still": Superflous "it".

In section 6.2 (Defining Fonts) the word 'hash' is used strangely. It
seems like it is used to mean hash tables: "The parameters is a hash
with mixed key types", "The characters table is a list of character
hashes indexed by an integer number", "Each character hash itself is a
hash", "The kerns table is a hash indexed by character index", "The
ligatures table is a hash indexed by character index", "with the values
being yet another small hash, with two fields".

"They were mostly use for": "use" instead of "used".

"At the font level there can be a fonts an (indexed) Lua table."
