I regularly read new proposals at http://std.dkuug.dk/JTC1/SC2/wg2/docs/
to learn interesting things about different writing systems. I recently
read Dr Ken Lunde's proposal to add HIRAGANA/KATAKANA LETTER SMALL KO
n3987 ( http://std.dkuug.dk/JTC1/SC2/wg2/docs/n3987.pdf ), and it looks
like the perfect proposal for unicode encoding, with reference to
digital encoding reference (Sha-Ken) from 1992.
However, it leaves a courious script geek like a bit frustrated, since I
have no idea what this character are used for. For an old Japanese
orthography ? For some linguistic/dialectal notation ? For some place
names ? The Wikipedia pages on Hiragana and Katakana give some
information on the use of the already encoded small kanas, but nothing
on these small ko.
Does anyone has more information ?
