Thanks for this link. I love to read about what people have to say
on the topic of their own writing system. I don't particularly like
to read articles that include phrases like the following.

"congeries of apodictic statements"

The Cree are not at all interested in Evans of the Cree syllabary.
Some Cree deny the syllabary is his invention. However, there *is* a
common vocabulary. Everyone that talks about Cree, apart from those
otherwise enlightened by your book, uses the term Syllabics.
