Well, I've often found it curious that so many of the people around Han China's borders made character scripts of their own, without borrowing much more than the form of brush-strokes - Tangut, Jurchen, and a few more I can remember just now. Oh, and the character script I devised when I had just started learning Chinese. Can't even remember the name now... Boudewijn Rempt |
