  • Definition
    • A script is derived from another when it was clearly created with the other script as the single most important basis for the script, and when script model, character shapes, order, names, and sound values have been largely preserved. In some cases the script model will have changed to support a different language, and there needs to be differences in character repertoire sufficient to consider the two scripts distinct.
