Tifinagh character notes

Updated Wed 31 Aug 2014 • tags tifinagh, scriptnotes

This page lists characters in Unicode's Tifinagh block and provides information about them. For information about Tifinagh script and its features in general, see the companion document Tifinagh Script Notes.

To view this page as intended, you need a Tifinagh font. Click the blue vertical bar at the bottom right of the page to apply other fonts, if you have them on your system. For transcriptions I recommend the excellent and free Doulos SIL font.

If you click on any red example text, you will see a list of the characters that make up the example appear at the bottom right of the page.

To find a character by codepoint, type #char0000 at the end of the URL in the address bar, where 0000 is a four-figure, hex codepoint number, all in uppercase.
