  • Next message: Doug Ewell: "RE: Characters"

    I regularly read new proposals at
    to learn interesting things about different writing systems. I recently
    read Dr Ken Lunde's proposal to add HIRAGANA/KATAKANA LETTER SMALL KO
    n3987 ( ), 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 ?
