I've been trying to remember the name of this for weeks now, and I
cannot. Web searches have not been helpful, either.
When I was in college, oh those many years ago, at the University of
Texas (Austin), I accidentally came across a survey of writing systems
in Japan. In Japanese. One of the syllabaries given was apparently
used by "spirits" or something like that. It's a very sqiggly writing
system, but at the time I thought it looked pretty cool.
Has anyone else heard of this, or am I hallucinating? Can anyone give
a name for this?
