Glyph of the word 'lo'. and Glyph of the word 'lo'.


  • (syl.) glyph for the syllable lo in the Kamakawi syllabary
  • (n.) root

A nolu i lo.
“Taro is a root.”

Notes: Here I mean the plantish sort of root, not the root of a word. The determined version is used for “root”, and the undetermined for the syllable.

This iku looked a lot more rootish in the original. Now it kind of looks like a 7. It lends itself to a number of fancy iku which we’ll likely see in the future, but this one, as it is, is a little plain, I suppose.
