Ch. 4, Path of the Warrior

4) The Warrior Shows his Interior

Even if it hurts, live with the truth.
This is the path of the warrior.
This is the only path.

이타 요도 더 다나고
이타 도옴버


Korean calligraphy

This is why I love Korean and Hangul.

Korean calligraphy Hangul By Samuraijohnny (originally posted to Flickr as Korean Calligraphy)  
[CC BY-SA 2.0], via Wikimedia Commons Korean calligraphy is an art of writing Hangul and Hanja. Unlike Western calligraphy, which is written with a rigid instrument, traditional Korean calligraphy is created with a soft and flexible brush. With the characteristic strokes which change in broadness and speed, on a usually white sheet of paper, its general appearance reminds of other East Asian writings. However, it does have its distinctions.

For one, while Hanja characters have exactly the same radicals, or the graphical components, as do Chinese characters in China, Hangul on the other hand has its own distinct shapes that calligraphers never had to produce before.

And Hangul was where my interest in calligraphy started.

Ever since I’ve learned to scribble Hangul, I’ve been interested in learning more than just the appropriate shape of letters and the stroke order. Typing Hangul

Kala Glyphs Keyboard Layout

Started working on a keyboard layout for Tloko.

Not really sure about this…a few issues remain;

1) the caps lock (and the shift key for that matter); Tloko doesn’t use caps and the vowel keys would (could) be set to modify a consonant glyph

2) the tab key might be redundant but might be used differently based on writing direction

3) the numbers…typing “4” would mean hitting the “1” key four times…a bit silly, and the billions key would hardly ever be used

4) the other function keys…?

I’m fairly certain it would work similar to other abugida-like scripts in that the C would be modified by the V pressed immediately after. To represent the consonants I used C+o because 1) the “o” goes with every consonant (phonotactically) and 2) each consonant is in its ‘base’ form (4×4).

So, if you pressed “to” then “i” the result would be “ti“…and if you pressed “ko” and “-c” the result would be final “k“, and so on.

I hope that makes sense. I’m still learning about this as I go along.

Something to mull over….
