This is a work in progress.
This script, which does not yet have a name or an associated language, is a gul written from top to bottom, with columns proceeding from left to right, like Mongolian. It's inspired by hangul and its alleged parent Phagspa, but unlike in Korean, the letters are not formed into syllabic blocks. The characters are shown alongside their counterparts in tengwar and the Latin alphabet.
Consonant signs have these iconic featural hints:
- Labial signs (b, p, m, f) represent the shape of the lips.
- Alveolar signs (d, t, n, s) and velar signs (g, k, ŋ) represent the front and back of the tongue.
- Voiced stops (b, d, g) and voiceless stops (p, t, k) are round or flat respectively.
- Nasals (m, n, ŋ) are open at the top like the nasal passage.
There are only 18 letters in this alphabet. Some sounds that aren't distinct phonemes in the language among whose speakers the script originated are expressed by digraphs:
|ss||/s/, not initially|
|ff||/f/, not initially|
