adscript

Encyclopedia

  • Adscript (from Lat. ad, on or to, and scribere, to write) means something written after, as opposed to subscript which means A laborer was called an "adscript of the soil" (adscriptus glebae) when he could be sold or transferred. — “Adscript - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • This is still the most common convention today, although over the past few decades, many editors have preferred to reinstate the iota as an adscript. Others take a mixed approach, using the adscript for capitals, but the subscript for lower case letters. [edit] See also. Greek diacritics. — “Iota adscript - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • Is adscript really a mixed approach? I thought that that capitals were always written with diacritics preceding and subscripts following and that the inclusion of subscripted capitals in some newer unicode fonts was a mistake (see here[1])--Lo2u 22:34, 1 June 2006 (UTC). — “Talk:Iota adscript - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
