Here it is. The final FINAL script. No more changes beyond this, I promise.





The sample is from Ultimate by Golol Bordello.

It is now sort of like a pointed abjad, vowels are only used: 1. At the beginning of a word 2. When there are two vowels in a row (only the second is written) 3. Where it would be ambiguous otherwise (t/t/t) 4. In proper names and titles of books.

Ooh, wow, that is really aesthetically pleasing. I love the shapes of the letters, they fit together really well. I'd love to see a breakdown of the alphabet.

Thank you! It's my favorite of my scripts so far.

I'll get to the alphabet soon, it's just a matter of making a "good" copy.

I'm loving this one to death! More samples please! And looking forward to the alphabet.

So, it's a vertical script. Interesting. It looks continuous, too. So, it works quite well.

I think writers of this script might more easily than the rest of us make their writing actually be an illustration; a caricature of someone's profile, for instance.

An interesting concept indeed. Maybe I'll work on that as a traditional art.

On first look, this should qualify to be amongst the many complex scripts out there. Not only that it seems the choice of letter forms makes writing convenient, should it let to evolve, at least on a calligraphic level, certain common patterns may even become functional logograms.

There's something I don't quite get, yet. Why is a punctuation mark (? ! .) be placed at the beginning of a sentence? Don't say that Holxs is written from bottom to top!

It's top to bottom. Don't worry.

Having one of the marks at the beginning causes the sentence to be a question/exclamation/imperative, but they are not punctuation because they do not say that you should stop. In the Latin alphabet, ! and ? mean the same as . (all mean fullstop) but ! and ? tell you to say it differently. Fullstops go at the end of a sentence and inflection changers go at the beginning. I guess I forgot to specify that. Embarassed

That's interesting. With that, inflection can give the reader a rough idea of the next message. Even the inflections alone can suffice, given the context.

That's what I think.

Precisely! You can tell how a sentence should be said before reading it like in Spanish, instead of after like in English.

I suppose in the case of "WARNING!" labels you could use just the imp. mark and no fullstop, but it would be considered improper.

YAAAAAAAAAY! I love it and thanks for posting this! Now I can practice writing in it. And who knows maybe get inspired by it.

You never know when it comes to pretty scripties. Mr. Green

So true, you never know. I've been inspired by Jilingki in the past, although I have yet to find a use for the resulting script.

The reason this looks completely different from the "old" script has to do with the con-history, which I may explain later.


You may explain it now. I can't imagine what kind of event leads to the emergence of this optional script. Perhaps, you have the answer?

Everytime I write in my pretty scripty, when I find something rather inconvenient to write, I made attempts to simplify the calligraphy. Concated rough ciphers are made smoother.

Really?! That's never happened with me before! Is the script complete because I wanna see it. I'm honored to have inspired you.

Now let me see it! Mr. Green

Looks great, Heim.

I also agree with eldin raigmore, this script does seem like an illustration or art form, almost.

Thanks! And welcome back!

Actually, if you write "ie" or "tg" they look a lot like faces, it's great!
