I always wonder why the letter t and g look weird when they’re upside down


half-clever t1_jca2y2u wrote

Seems like they used a letter that used the "normal" vertical space allotted to the letter t, not following the example of other letters being flipped and shifted down one vertical step.

They are legit characters in their own right that were never intended to be merely upside-down letters, so there is not a uniform upside-down alphabet to draw from, it's just using the closest approximations.

What do you mean legit?


dclxvi616 t1_jcdya9h wrote

I mean that’s not an upside-down ‘k’, it’s a character/symbol that’s there for some other legitimate purpose that just happens to look like an upside-down ‘k’. I dunno’ wtf that purpose is because it’s an obscure symbol, but that’s how it be.

Well, /ʞ/ in the International Phonetic Alphabet is used for a velar click.
