I would like to know what is the modern, formal, writing system with simplest (most minimal) letter symbols by these means:
- Total number of letters comprised only or mostly from line segments (horizontal, vertical or both) and/or circles
- Total number of letters comprised from the lowest number of polygon dots per letter (3 dots)
Because no writing system I know is made only or mostly from line segments and/or circles; there are usually always letters with
three ≥ plygon dotsalso.
Note: Every font that isn't loyal mathematically to the formal
font-pattern of the language (a recursive font would be an harsh example) isn't counted.
I personally recognize English, Arabic, Modern Hebrew, and Modern South Korean writing system (South Korean Hangul) as the most minimal writing systems I know by means of line segments and polygons.
South Korean Hangul, for example:
ㅏ ㅑ ㅓ ㅔ ㅗ ㅛ ㅜ ㅠ ㅡ ㅣ
11 Vowel combinations:
ㅐ ㅒ ㅕ ㅖ ㅘ ㅙ ㅚ ㅝ ㅞ ㅟ ㅢ
A strict determination requires vast comparative linguistics knowledge that I don't have.
What is the modern general communication language writing system with simplest (most minimal) letter symbols?
