I was thinking about abbreviations, shorthand writing,
and so on... especially about those I use in everyday
life, and the ones used in old manuscripts. Do you have
any info on those?

For example, in my written Spanish I use <q'> for <que>,
<x> for <por>, <xq'> for <porque>, <//> for <-mente>
(in adverbs), etc. And I've seen pictures of many old
writings (mainly in Latin) where letters have a lot of
marks -- I've been told those are shortcuts.

So, do you have any nat-script info on that, and how do
you handle it in you con-scripts?
