Yi (Modern Yi, ꆈꌠꁱꂷ) is an East Asian logo-syllabary, written horizontally left-to-right (modern) or vertically right-to-left (traditional). Used for the Nuosu Yi language (2 million users) in the Liangshan Yi region of China. Yi signs are made from five basic strokes; dot, horizontal line, vertical line, arch and circle. Attested 500 years ago, believed to be use for perhaps even 5000 years. Needs software support for complex text layout (shaping). Read more on ScriptSource, Unicode, Wikipedia, Wiktionary, r12a.
