Chinese Writing: What are your top references?
The reason I ask is I am doing a short essay on comparing and characterizing contextual features in Chinese Arabic and Latin. I feel good about the Latin, and fairly good about the Arabic because i have some reference folk & books etc but in the case of the Chinese I am having a harder time than I would have thought finding a document which however flawed ( what document isn't? ) is still a reasonable document to reference. BTW what I am interested in finding is a) what models of dividing the strokes dominate, I have seen quite a few different ones or if no model does; and b) and anything that characterizes the alteration of radicals to fit beyond simply showing "how" to do it with a visual example. I am not sure how good a fit with typophile this is, but I have my fingers crossed.
As a postscript ( oh unintended pun! ouch!! ) If there are any references that somebody that is making a CJK font should know about and you want to post that info as well that would be super peachy! So of my classmates here at Reading are gearing up to do that kind of font.
