Type Anatomy: Bracketed / Unbracketed vs. Adnate / Abrupt Serifs

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm reading about serifs and how they are connected to the stem. I come across the term pairs bracketed / unbracketed and adnate / abrupt.

Are bracketed serifs the same as adnate serifs, or vice versa, are unbracketed serifs the same as an abrupt ones? Are these term pairs interchangeable?

Thanks
