Instead of the evolutionary model of logographies, syllabaries, and
alphabets, etc. I suggest that there are only two basic types of

These are alphabets or analytic systems, and syllabaries or
wholistic systems. Each of these may encode to a lesser or greater
degree the morphology of the language. Syllabaries may be non-
analytic like Japanese and Cherokee, or have an analytic composition
like Cree, Korean and Tamil.

While the analytic nature of the syllabaries may be useful for
technical encoding, these systems are still learned by some native
speakers as syllabaries. Some members of these language communities
will have reduced access to digital literacy if the syllabic nature
of their system is not reflected at some level in the input method.
