The glyph of a head word may be combined with the glyph of one modifier. These are called combined glyphs[1] or compound glyphs. There are 2 main ways of doing this:

  • Stacked: The modifier glyph goes above the head glyph. kala lili becomes kala^lili.
  • Scaled: The modifier glyph goes inside of the head glyph. kala lili becomes kala*lili. To allow for scalar combination, the head glyph generally must contain a single, sufficiently large, main negative space.
