Good question.

I don't know for sure. But I have several clues. The shapes resemble those I have seen in korean texts (which I know are korean because somebody who knows told me). I won't know for sure until somebody (I trust) interprets the signs for me.

But even if I see signs of a type I have had no former exposure to, there is a good chance that I will recognize them as signs, without knowing what they mean. Received on Mon May 31 2004 - 19:01:21 CEST
