The Super-Science of Katakamuna, by K. Fukano – 3.

For reference, we present the complete syllabary chart of Katakamuna. This chart is from K. Fukano’s book. Fukano has placed the Katakamuna symbols in modern syllable order, for the sake of the modern reader. It was probably not done this way in Katakamuna days. Note that in the “u” row, the leftmost entry is “n” where “wu” should be. That is the way it is done in modern times. However, there is reason to believe that it was originally “wu.”

Fukano uses this chart to demonstrate the similarities of Katakamuna and katakana syllables. He suggests that Katakamuna is the root of katakana. He points out characters ki, sa, to, yi, ra, and ri. What do you see?

For comparison with Wosite, here is the Wosite syllabary of 48 characters. Note that Wosite consonant order varies from the order shown above. Consonant order is important because it is an indication of the process of development during that time period. The biggest difference is that there is no “n” in Wosite. Instead, in the proper place there is indeed “wu.”
