ok, i promised a while ago that i would post some
pictures for eestaak writing.
you'll find a short string of symbols at :
( i'll eventually have a domain name of my own . . .
indeed you can see my stuff on bac at www.bnathyuw.com
at the moment, but my boyfriend needs to sort out the
web hosting properly ).
as mentioned before, it's a syllabary of a slightly
odd sort ( see my discussion with christophe last week
) with characters reminiscent of linear b. i'm working
on a font at the moment, and these images are taken
from it . . . at some time or another i'll work out
how to map the syllables onto a computer keyboard (
shouldn't be too difficult as there are only 40
symbols plus two diacritics and whatever puncuation i
decide on )
the idea is that it should be written rtl ttb. it
isn't featural ( ie ka ke and ko will look completely
unrelated ) altho as you can see there are recurring
i'll post more when i have a better idea what's going
on . . . !
