View Full Version : Cursive letters

Always looking to improve my handwriting. I was study the various letter scripts. How do you write your cursive n, one hump or two humps. I was taught to use two humps for n and three for m. Some script charts show the n with just one hump and others show it with two humps.

It depends if it's a dromedary or bactrian...

I think the two humps for "n" is from the line UP to the n from a previous letter. The "n" is one hump, but the link from the other letter can look like a hump, too. Same with an "m", it is two humps, but the tale leading into can make it look like three.

In other words, when drawn in isolation, the "lead-in" loop might look like and additional hump.

I don't know of any camels with three humps . . . That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I still write two humps for n, three for m, just like on the green chart in our elementary classrooms back in the 50s.

Capital n is one hump and capitol m is two humps. Add a hump to each for lower case.
