|WikiProject Writing systems||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
Have the writing instrument(s) entries link to this page.
I have started listing Writing accessories at the bottom of the page - until there are enough to create a separate page (which might include other related items).
Can someone correct the film's name please?
Needs parallel translation to and from the German version. Jackiespeel 18:29, 26 July 2005 (UTC)
The reference is to Aguirre Wrath of God - since removed (using a stencil for name).

should Line (art) go to the article Line Art or are these two seperate things? --illumi 05:57, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
Article Need to be Expanded
It would be good if the ancient writing instrument section be expanded. There are other writing instruments from other cultures/civilizations not mention. Like Sanskrit, Arabic, Tibetan, ancient Greek etc.

I was really doubtful of one of the many claims make on this article that are unsourced. And I cannot find any evidence that Roman's abraded lead onto wood/papyrus to write with. See my History.SE thread. Wisnoskij (talk) 12:55, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
School use of slates
Typically schoolroom slates were *not* used with chalk, except for very young children. Chalk lines would have been far too crude/fat for older children to allow much work to be recorded. "Slate pencils" were used - these were made of soft slate or a slate composite which left a greyish, pencil-thickness line on the (harder) slate which was being written on. Usually such things wouldn't be worth mentioning, but this is about writing implements!18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:08, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
