    I saw that in another thread where you posted, Haunty.  What throws me off is trying to figure out where - in what field of study or practice - each of the symbols would be used! Greek and Hebrew alphabets, okay.  Music, okay. Some money symbols, okay.  Some IPA, okay.  But there are a few that I've never seen.  Can you identify all of them?

      That's an interesting thought. I've always though they must have been from "exotic languages."

      No, of course I can't. But I can highlight a symbol, right-click on it and select search. There is usually a wikipedia article that explains where it is from.

        smile What do you mean "No, of course I can't"? smile I seriously thought you knew more exotic languages and alphabets than pretty much everyone else on HP.

        If you actually can run a search for them (maybe I should try this myself first, I haven't done so yet), I would be most interested in the capital T, R, S and D.  I'll try what you suggested and report back here, in case anyone else is as curious as I am.

    Hi Haunty!

    I had to admit to myself last night that you are, indeed, smarter than me, which is why I gave up. I also tried a complete post in white in answer to your last post, but it went wrong.

    I like that writing, but a whole Hub? smile

    Whoa, I'm definitely checking this out!

    Ŧ / ŧ (T with a bar, T with a stroke sign) is the 25th letter in the Northern Sámi alphabet, where it represents the voiceless dental fricative [θ].

    (from Wikipedia)  Thanks, Haunty!  This is too much fun on a depressing day in the forums.

    In Pinyin, the official Romanization of Mandarin Chinese, macrons over a, e, i, o, u, ü (ā, ē, ī, ō, ū, ǖ) indicate the high level tone of Mandarin Chinese.

    Ŕ (minuscule: ŕ) is a letter of the Slovak and Lower Sorbian alphabets. It is formed from R with the addition of an acute.

    Ł or ł, described in English as L with stroke, is a letter of the Polish, Kashubian, Sorbian, Łacinka (Latin Belarusian), Łatynka (Latin Ukrainian), Wilamowicean, Navajo ...

    The character "ş" represents the voiceless postalveolar fricative /ʃ/ (as in "sh ow") in several languages: Turkish (It is included as a separate letter (Ş) in the Turkish ...

    Ɗ (minuscule: ɗ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet. The lower case, ɗ represents a voiced dental implosive or a voiced alveolar implosive in the International Phonetic Alphabet. It is used with the same value in the orthographies of various languages, notably some African languages, such as Fula and Hausa.

    (Note:  All quoted from the article descriptions on the page of search results - I think all were from Wikipedia.)

    Ahhh, happy I am .....

    THAT is Hilarious!!

    In Hungarian we have letters like á é ó ö ő ú ü ű. But they are not that special compared to the ones you've discovered. smile

      Aficionadaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Well, I think they're all special in their own way.  I just haven't run across all of them yet.

      ő  ű - those look extra-special to me!  I always thought Hungarian was ultra-exotic, and it was on my list of languages I would have loved to learn, if I had actually pursued one of my dreams (to learn dozens of languages).  Oh well... I guess I'll just enjoy them vicariously.

    I love that word "fricative"  and I intend to use it all the time now - since that would be a very fricative thing to do.  Its better if I just don't even know what it means! big_smile

      Aficionadaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I know!  Linguistics (or rather, phonetics) has some very cool terminology:  sibilant; fricative; glottal; palatal; dental; velar; guttural; alveolar; spirant; continuant; voiced and voiceless; ...
