Old Kannada — 1100 AD, India

Old Kannada "rra"

Old Kannada, also called Halegannada, Proto-Kannada, and Old Karanese, developed from Kadamba.  It has evolved into present-day Kannada and Telugu, but has a couple of characters which are no longer used, including “rra” (shown illustrating this posting).

About ducky

I'm a computer programmer professionally, currently working on mapping applications. I have been interested non-professionally for a long time in the effect on society on advances in communications technology -- things like writing, vowels, spaces between words, paper, etc.
