Glyph of the word 'ne'. and Glyph of the word 'ne'.


  • (syl.) glyph for the syllable ne in the Kamakawi syllabary
  • (n.) seagull

Ane ne ima.
“Seagulls are really loud.”

Notes: I think that’s a pretty good seagull. Originally, it looked a lot more like the little “m” seagulls we learn to draw in kindergarten, but the iku was made more angular and stretched to fit what came to be the canonical glyph box over time.
