No data is associated with this publication.

This is a proposal to add the Tangsa script to the international encoding standard Unicode. The Tangsa script (ISO 15924: Tnsa) is used for writing the Tangsa languages (ISO 639-3: nst), which are spoken in Arunachal Pradesh, India and Sagaing Region of Myanmar. The script was created in 1990 by Mr. Lakhum Mossang. 

The characters were published in Unicode Standard version 14.0 in September 2021.

The proposal was written by Stephen Morey, based on an earlier version by Anshuman Pandey. Deborah Anderson assisted on the Unicode side;  she had financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the Universal Scripts Project (PR-253360-17), part of the Script Encoding Initiative at UC Berkeley.
