Before delving to cursive fonts, it is important to understand where they came from. Cursive is also known as script or joint writing and is a unique form of handwriting in which the language symbols are conjointly written in a flowing style.
The initial purpose of cursive writing was to create a smoother, faster way to write. Nevertheless, some forms of cursive writing do not actually contain conjoined forms. For example, formal cursive writing uses conjoined styles while casual scriptwriting may contain joints and lifts. In other cultures, particularly Cyrillic and Arabic, the letters tend to be joined at the ends and in certain situations; they look like there is a string of undulating strokes to depict a word or statement.
