The Cherokee Syllabary
In order to recognize and correctly evaluate basic letter forms regarding their rarity, or general character, forensic document examiners are expected to have a ready reference file of the various systems of writing used in the United States during the last 100 years . However, one system of writing appears to have been omitted from the reference/study materials. This paper provides information on that system of American writing known as the “Cherokee Alphabet,” which is still in use today.
