Dear Peter

I will easily admit that this thread is way beyond my understanding,
but as a child looking up at the sky and asking why it is blue I do
have a question about this.

I recently attended a Korean typographer's lecture where he mentioned
that pictographic symbols would be altered based on where the tongue
was placed when it made the sound.

Am I reading your response wrong?
