Chapter Summary

The Kitan small graphs were each allocated a number in Research, which has become a standard list, and the numbers a recognised way of referring to them. The expression 該貫 in the quotation presented in this chapter, translated 'covered everything', is usually understood by Chinese scholars to mean 'linked together', contrasting the graphs of the large script, written individually like Chinese characters, with the small script, in which the graphs are 'linked together' to form words. Chinese characters are transcribed in a modified form of pinyin, which reflects more closely the underlying form of Chinese transcribed by the Kitan script.

Keywords: Chinese scholars; Kitan script
