rasm

  1. The shape of a letter without dots that distinguish it from other letters.
    • 2017, J. R. Osborn, Letters of Light:
      Higher layers flesh out rasm; they provide body, specificity, and personality. Milo labels these shapes “archigraphemes,” the foundational structures on which graphemes are built.
