The Inuktitut syllabary is a writting system, used by Inuit people in Nunavut and in Nunavik, Quebec. In 1976, the Language Commission of the Inuit Cultural Institute made it the co-official script for the Inuktitut language, along with the Latin Alphabet.
O.K. so what I didn't know was that Syllabics weren't evolved by the Inuit people, "they are a variety of shorthand once taught to secretaries, which was used by missionaries to teach writing to Cree, and then to Inuit." (Nunatsiaq News)
Short hand? What kind of short hand are we talking about here? This ain't like no short hand I ever seen! Who knew people who can write syllabics were actually super secretaries? I wonder if this short form is still being used in some office somewhere. It's way to complicated for me, I am going to just stick to my spoken one word sentences.
