Chapter Summary

This section of the book presents a list of graphs which are related to the Kitan language and script. Chinese and Japanese researchers quote words and sentences in Kitan without any transcription. Each graph is represented by one or more roman letters which probably, but by no means certainly, represent the approximate phonetic values of the Kitan graphs. Graphs which seem to have the same, or perhaps a very similar pronunciation as deduced from the transcription values are indicated by an acute accent. Kitan graphs were used to write two quite distinct languages, with different phonological systems.

Keywords: Kitan graphs; Kitan language; Kitan script
