The document L2/05-194 as found on
shows an uppercase sample of the Thompson (Nłeʔkepmxcin) language to
demonstrate the caseless use of the letter U+0294 (encircled in the
sample but not subject here), attached here as example1.png .
Looking more in detail, it appears that there letters which are no
basic Latin letters are not uppercased at all, especially:
U+02B7 MODIFIER LETTER SMALL W
(for which exists no formal uppercase, but U+1D42 MODIFIER LETTER
CAPITAL W could act as uppercase, and in fact from the appearance
only it is not clearly distinguishable).
U+019B LATIN SMALL LETTER LAMBDA WITH STROKE
(for which does not exist an uppercase equivalent in Unicode anyhow)
U+0259 LATIN SMALL LETTER SCHWA or (not determinable by appearance)
U+01DD LATIN SMALL LETTER REVERSED E
(for which uppercase equivalents exist for any of the both possible
Is this (i.e. not uppercasing letters beside the basic Latin ones
in an otherwise uppercased text) a common or widespread practice in
Canadian aboriginal languages?
