Yes, it is from a book in Elfdalian printed in 2000, see
The s-j combination also occurs in the book's title.

I have several texts using this symbol.


[Concerning the g-slash, r-slash, eth-slash symbols,

Concerning the a e i o u y å ä ö with hook (ogonek),
they can be coded using U+0328 when no separate code point exists.]
