Allographs are alternate forms of writing characters. We have already learned to write the basic A and I. The above two illustrations show two of their allographs.
On the left is the spiral form of A. This cosmic allograph indicates the special meaning of the syllable A in the word ama, Cosmos. The example in this analysis is the word amakami, the title of leaders such as Amateru who are held in supreme regard as if they represent Cosmos. Analyzing the elements of the characters enables a deeper understanding of the word.
The example on the right is the word, hitakami, the northern land of Toyoke-sama. The allograph used is the solar HI. While the usual HI is written with kase bell-shape of I an
d two vertical lines of the consonant H, this allograph is used to mean sun. It contains the solar symbol in place of the two lines.
There are many homonyms in the Wosite language. One of them is ho which has the multiple meanings of time/season, millet ears, and fire. Recall that the utuho glyph represents burning or fire. It is used accordingly when ho means fire.
Allographs in Wosite make the text clearer as well as more interesting.
