This page tests the Carrier/Déné Syllabary subset of the "Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics" Unicode block.

It is part of the Gallery of Unicode Fonts and is based on the following sources:

- The Unicode Standard (version 5.0.0)
- Déné Syllabics information from the Yinka Déné Language Institute
- Chris Harvey's Syllabics pages

(His charts are a much better place to find language-related information.) - Peter T. Daniels & William Bright's
*The World's Writing Systems* - Omniglot's pages on Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics

pick the desired font name

from this list | - or - | by typing in the exact font name |

The selected font must be installed on your system. This page might not display properly with older versions of Internet Explorer or Netscape. Additionally, Netscape & Firefox may show an unsupported character using a different font to the one selected. Internet Explorer seems to do this too, but to a much lesser extent.

Note that the letters used in column/row headings represent the Unicode designations, not necessarily how the letters would be transcribed using the Latin alphabet.

***Note**: Non-Unicode sources on the Carrier syllabary show an isolated "s" as a raised, half-size, serif Latin "s" (s). An "initial s" is shown as a raised, half-size, sans serif "s" (s). But Unicode currently only has one character defined for this purpose: U+1506 ATHAPASCAN S.
