Factoid of the day

the Chinese history podcast this week is about the Nushu script, written only by women.
no it was not for grocery lists, but for poetry.

and it writes syllables (similar to hieroglyphics or cuneiform writing).

More at Wikipedia.

Wikipedia on various Chinese scripts.


short note:
there is also a History of China podcast, which right now is discussing ancient Chinese history. I get it on my soundcloud app but there is also an itunes link.
