Creation and Usage Notes

It says in my notes that the pictograph yu served as the source of an abjadic glyph, but if you look at the glyph for yu, it's a pretty clear ligature, so...maybe not? Time passes... Oh, duh. It's an abjad. The pictograph y is the one that used to be for an eye, and now it's used for y. My bad. (See, I often do know what I'm doing, but then I forget why I did it and I end up having to guess later.)
