I understand that, and the traditional 永字 classification is clearly
flawed. It’s still widely use in shūfǎ/shodō instruction though, so I
think a contrastive comparison of it with the Unicode classification
would be nice to have. Of course, in my very humble opinion there
should be an explanation like that of n3063.pdf in the book to begin
It seems like yǒngzì #6 and #7 would both be P (an unification that is
not without precedent; despite #7 being shorter and straighter, I’ve
seen several diagrams that just use the same name for both). The
other 6 yǒngzì strokes all seem to have one-on-one correspondences
with CJK Strokes letters, as per table above.
W/彎/wān/curved apparently is unrelated to #6 (which, confusingly, is
also called 彎 on occasion… piě is a better name IMHO). Unicode W is
used whenever there’s a curve… except for SWZ? Earlier I was looking
at glyphs from the WenQuanYi font, which has SW straight (erroneously,
I guess). But in the case of SWZ, even the Unicode example is
completely straight, so I don’t really get its name.
