Yesterday, March 3rd '21, in advance of IRG Meeting No. 56, IRG posted document: IRGN2469, entitled CJK Unified Ideographs Extension H. One of the characters in the document grabbed my attention:

enter image description here

Or

⿺见↷见

BabelStone PUA also lists this character

But BabelStone's link to the original Tweet:

See @JUMANJIKYO (拾萬字鏡) on Twitter

Seems to link to ⿴囗回 instead of ⿺见↷见 or ⿺見↷見

Any ideas what this character is about?

    Is a valid ideographic description character?

    @dROOOze I can tell you it does not occur in the CJK IDS which is the first thing I checked when I saw this post!! Mar 5 at 19:56
  • The correct IDS seems to be 〾⿺见见, but the leading 〾 doesn’t seem to really help that specifically.

  • I hope they introduce things like ↷ formally, as we currently don't have the ability to specify rotated or mirrored components. I'm surprised people would make up a character like ⿺见↷见 though, as it doesn't seem to be even writable using common strokes.

Evidence provided by the UK shows:

《江西省信丰县地名志》(1987) page 378 enter image description here

  • ⿺见↷见 = hidden

Now you see it...now you don't, I guess?

  • What is the character in the last row? The image is not very clear.

  • @Sweeper ⿵门见 a simplified form of 𨴼 (U+28D3C). On BabelStone PUA it is:  (U+E72D). In CJK Unified Ideographs Extension H it has been allotted the temporary code point: 32244.
