|Dongba and geba
|1000 CE ? to present|
The Naxi language of southwestern China may be written in the syllabic geba script. There is also a Naxi tradition of pictographic symbols called dongba; this may sometimes be glossed with geba for clarification, since a dongba text may only be intelligible to its author.
A Latin alphabet was developed for Naxi in the 20th century.
