Japanese term or phrase: 突?端
Actually, the term I am after uses different kanji, but I am wondering if it may be a typo for 突端.
In my original pdf. doc, the left-hand kanji is definitely 小 on the top, and 大 on the bottom (I can't even find this kanji in my kanji dictionaries or on my computer to type it here).
Could anyone please either tell me how to read the kanji I describe, or advise me if you agree it may be a type for 突端.

Many thanks in advance (-:

Explanation:
If I understood correctly, the Kanji is 尖, right?
尖 (セン;とがる)

せん‐たん【先端・×尖端】
1 長い物のいちばんはしの部分。とがった物のさきの部分。「棒の―」「錐(きり)の―」「岬の―」
2 時代・流行などの先頭。先駆。「流行の―を行く」

Now, if you have Japanese IME, you can click on the IME-パッド icon on the language toolbar and actually write the kanji you are looking for, by pressing 手書き. It's worth to try.

Suerte!
