Proposal to encode the Sunuwar script in Unicode

No data is associated with this publication.

This is a proposal to add the Sunuwar script to the international character encoding standard Unicode.  The script is used to write the Sunuwar (or Kõinch) language (ISO 639:3: suz) of Nepal and Sikkim, India. It was developed by Krishna Bahadur Jentich in the 1940s.

Financial support was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (PR-268710-20) for the Universal Scripts Project, part of the Script Encoding Initiative at UC Berkeley. Additional support came from the Translation Commons project. The Unicode Consortium hosts the document registry that contains this proposal.

The script was approved by the Unicode Technical Committee in January 2022 and will appear in a future version of the Unicode Standard.

Note: There is a known error in the code chart: 11BD2 and 11BDC are swapped in the chart on page 14.
