and here is a design to mean

because

The design to mean

however

is inspired by the first letter of the Latin word Tamen and then the idea that the word 'however' is used after stating something then either going back a bit in the opposite direction or going in another direction.

For experimental use from an OpenType font, the code %881 is suggested.

The design to mean

because

is inspired by the word 'because' being used after stating something so as to state clarification of the first thing that was stated, so I have used an equals sign followed by a second, linked, yet subsidiary, equals sign.

For experimental use from an OpenType font, the code %882 is suggested.

We already have an established Unicode symbol for ‘Because’, namely  (U+2235).

Regarding my choice of the codes %881 and %882, these are chosen so as to be compatible with the codes for some earlier designs,

those being compatible with the codes used for designs in the documents linked from the following web page.

Looking back through the posts it seems to me that I need a language-independent glyph for the meaning that in English is expressed using the word 'sometimes'.

I need to think about such a design. I assign code %883 for the glyph with that meaning.
