At the Arabic Workshop this weekend with Nadine Chahine, I found it really natural to apply Noordzij's Translation/Rotation/Expansion Model to the Arabic examples Nadine showed us. For those of you who have read Noordzji, what do you think? Is there a connection?
Also, has there been additional literature written by others that expand on Noordzji, related to Non-Latin? When I got back home, I re-read The Stroke and Letterletter and I noticed he made only a few references to non-latin writing:
One passage in The Stroke made reference to Arabic in the invention of the word space + "ligature" development.
In Letterletter, he spoke of "Kai-Sho" as a kind of Interrupted construction, and "Gyousho" as a Returning construction in Japanese writing.
Surely, there must be more out there on this topic.
