Fish Physiology: Recent Advances

Example text

The use of the term "syllabary" for both these kinds of scripts will, therefore, be unsatisfactory. Based on the transparent, rule governed nature ofthe composition ofthe syllables in the Indian scripts, we have in our earlier work referred to them as semisyllabaries, following Diringer (1968). However given that the Indian writing systems share some characteristics of both alphabetic and syllabic writing systems and in view of the increasing use of the more appropriate term "alphasyllabary" to refer to these writing systems by South Asian specialists (Bright, 2000) they will be referred to as alphasyllabaries here.

It is these syllables which are sub-units of words. However, since the composition ofthe graphosyllable is rule governed it is possible to identify the distinct phonemic composition ofeach graphosyllable. As in most other writing systems there are exceptions to the general rules but these are few in number. To represent a syllable final consonant a consonant symbol is either written in a conjunct form (typically reduced in size) or else with a diacritic, which "cancels" or "kills" the inherent vowel Ia!.

All three are taught in school along with an additional script. They vary in terms ofthe degree to which they express the sound patterns of the words they represent as well as in the extent to which they are used. While some ofthe Chinese hanzi, provide cues as to their phonetic expression the Japanese kanji and the Korean hancha are largely semantically mediated with little or no phonetic cues. All three are taught in school and used concurrently with an alternate script, more so the hanzi and kanji as compared to the hancha.
