I’ll present a paper by David MacKay, Seb Wills, and Annalu Waller (May 2007).

Blissymbolics is a graphic semantic language created by Charles K. Bliss (1897-1985) for international communication. Bliss sentences are composed of blisswords, and blisswords are composed of characters.

We have combined Blissymbolics with the information-efficient writing system, Dasher, and an open-source font provided by George Sutton. Bliss-Dasher is an efficient and fun way of writing Bliss. This paper describes in detail how we did it.
