This is an abjad-like "alphabet" for my language Vaijerīna. Practically the same thing I just posted on translations.



kai n'Olporta eino aketriel, an Surla il kurel. an kurgan Mjawra Onu sagel. nn Surla an bikran Fammo Floppu montārel. nn Mjawra momo del. nn Famma Onu faltel.

As soon as the door opened, a mouse ran in. A black cat followed. The mouse climbed up the shocked lady’s skirt. The cat did too. The woman gave the cat a beating.

Awesome. Looks Southeast Asian. I'd like to see a description of how it works.

Looks like you wrote that on a chalkboard. Did you?

Actually I wrote it with a pencil on a sheet of paper, but inverted the colours for (coolness and) visual clarity.

Here's the key:



As you can see, the vowel diactrics are written either above or bellow the consonant, thus indicating if they are before or after it. In many cases two diactrics may be used at a time (maybe I should have just pretended the paired vowels are different letters, but I don't see them that way Very Happy )

I like it. Your way of writing long vowels is nice and simple. (I've always liked abjads more than alphabets - even if there's no good reason, I'll always choose to make an abjad instead of an alphabet.)

Never thought to invert the color. That's a cool idea!

Yesterday when I looked at it I could barely see it. Today I can see it quite well.
It looks nice.
More useful comments later, now that I can read it.

Some characters already exist in reality, like S, psi, and I think I've seen the one that looks like a balloon with a string attached to it somewhere else before...

Ooh awesome! I thought that was chalk too. Reminds me of Gujarati!

It's Greek: φ (if that's the one you're thinking of) and it has the same sound too.

Yes I know, there are existing characters, but supreme originality wasn't really my initial goal (sort of). I have no problem with characters, who look or sound the same as in some-other-lang, as long as the passage still looks like whatever it should look like Very Happy (And it does, as far as I know)

@Serali, I will write and upload it, whenever I have enough time.

(1) So, there aren't a short and a long O, though all the other vowels come in short and long versions?
(2) What's that "silent" thing that looks like - or like U ?
What's it used for? Is that to support a vowel-diacritic when there's no actual consonant to diacriticize?

1. In Vaijerīna O comes only in one length. O is always short.
2. Exactly, it's for words like "au" etc.
