Han (Hanzi, Kanji, Hanja)



The Han script, encompassing Hanzi, Kanji, and Hanja, is a logographic writing system originating from China and is predominantly used in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages. This system of scripts is pivotal in East Asian cultural and literary expression, each language employing unique character sets and adaptations. Modern computers and operating systems support Han scripts through Unicode, allowing uniform representation and encoding of text. Though the exact origin is debated, Chinese characters are believed to have been developed by the ancient Chinese, with Cangjie, a legendary figure, often attributed as the creator.
