Depending on the context いいです also works.

... or メ, presuming that ア would already be used for Asia, of course.

comment Does this Japanese sentence sound right?
@DaveMG いくあて or ゆくあて (or あてもなく) don't seem to have their own entry in 大辞泉 or 大辞林, for example, although in Wiktionary does have いくあて. I understand いくあてもなく to mean simply "without a (specific) destination", although あてもなく is often seen with 彷徨う or 歩きまわる to express something like "wandering aimlessly".

Maybe you can tell us for what purpose you are translating those two lines. That'll make it easier to find the best translation.

"I think that covers all ones which are very similar visually." How about 八 --> ハ, or 三 --> ミ?

comment what is the name of the abbreviated writing style used in newspapers?
@TokyoNagoya It's just that the OP included an example of 体言止め and I wasn't sure whether to interpret your comment to mean that 体言止め (e.g. 発信, 受信, whatever) is an "abbreviation" (because (を)する is omitted). I didn't think that the Japanese thought of 体言止め as "abbreviation".

I think it is "kono syasin ha hokuman no mati" (sorry, no kana input).
