Resizing method[edit]

Were the revisions of this file generated by a manually-assisted process like Scale2x Poorly.gif? Or did you only use Scale2x for each iteration? (It looks like the latter to me; I'm not sure whether it's worth checking formally.) Eighty5cacao 19:53, 14 April 2011 (MST)

It was manually assisted. Look at the last upload's comment: I've never seen an automatic scaler that understands typographical concepts such as "overshoot". Also, in the Latin column, look at the shapes of the bows on f and r. --Tepples 17:05, 15 April 2011 (MST)
Ok. Sorry, I hope I did not offend you. My guess was based on the pixelation in the circumflex on what looks like î. Eighty5cacao 17:34, 15 April 2011 (MST)
No offense. It was a quirk of another featural abugida. --Tepples 22:41, 15 April 2011 (MST)

Ok, again, thank you. I did not read the upload comments carefully enough, and even if I did I would probably have misunderstood "at the next doubling." Eighty5cacao 22:55, 15 April 2011 (MST)

The word "gul"[edit]

Someone claims in private communication that borrowing the Korean word geul meaning "writing" to refer specifically to an alphabet with featural characteristics is inaccurate, as if someone would use kana to refer generically to syllabaries. I see it as paralleling kimono which literally means "thing to wear" but has since come to mean a specific style of Japanese robe. Thoughts? --Tepples (talk) 05:04, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

I have no specific comments, which at least means no objection. (P.S. Should the discussion above be courtesy-blanked?) --Eighty5cacao (talk) 14:16, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
