Description:

This volume presents 12 papers on a new approach to the analysis of writing

area of research in a systematic way. The individual contributions give an
overview about quantitative properties of symbols and of writing systems,
introduce methods of analysis, study individual writing systems as used for
different languages, set up an explanatory model of phenomena connected to
script development/evolution, and give a perspective to a general theory of
writing systems.
