Document WG2 N4738 proposes to encode 472 Khitan Small Script characters in ISO/IEC 10646 and Unicode, based on the 472 characters identified by West, Zaytsev & Everson in document WG2 N4725R Table 5. Questions have been raised about twenty-nine of these characters, as they may not all be attested in primary sources such as epitaph inscriptions. This document provides additional evidence relating to these twenty-nine characters, and discusses whether they should be encoded or not.
On May 22, 2019, at the meeting of the Academic Council of the IOM RAS, V.V. Shchepkin will submit his lecture New Sources about the History of the Southern Kuril Islands in the Second Half of the Eighteenth Century.
