In the name of...academia ( :ugeek: )...I propose that we undertake at least a basic study of the Sogdian language.

Any takers?

Hmmm...
Gotta say, I like the simplicity of Cuneiform and Ogham. The idea of lines and triangles making a language is so simple, its amazing how long people wrote like this.

Also, I appreciate thecalligraphy of Mandarin, Aramaic, Sanskrit, and Arabic.

I know, its a lot, but... those are my favorites!
