Yi Unicode Script

The word "Yi script" refers to both the Classical Yi (an ideogram script) and the later Yi syllabary, both of which are used to write the Yi languages. Cuan Wen or Wei Shu, as well as a number of other names, including "tadpole writing," have been used traditionally to refer to the script in Chinese. This should not be confused with romanized Yi, a system (or systems) created by missionaries and used sporadically by some government agencies afterwards. Sam Pollard also created a Yi abugida or alphasyllabary known as the Pollard alphabet for the Miao language, which he later transformed into "Nasu".
