My Name In Several Scripts/ Languages


Here is "Teddy Nee" in various Tibetan scripts, the first being the usual capital one (uchen or "ucän") and the others "ume" cursive variants (chuyig, drutsa, and tshuthung, among others).

Did you realize that most of the Asian languages have their own writing scripts, whereas European languages adopt Latin script? I find it very interesting. In fact, I am so interested in the aesthetic aspect of the script, especially that with curves and written as if it was drawn.

I am also amazed by how these writing scripts were created, by the fact that there are plenty of writing scripts in this world, and also by how Latin scripts eventually "conquered" most languages, especially European languages.
