Finished! (Took me 3 days)
Private use characters are encoded in Variation Selectors and Latin Ext. D.
Anyways, i realized "MY FONTS SUCK!!", so...
Now i'm making this, to improve. Had to realize that writing the ABC's in it looks off, but as long as the word makes at least SOME sense, it looks pretty gooood in it.
A WIP 9x7 serif font with many characters.
Obviously this is just a pixelized form, if anyone would like to make a smoothed out version, be my guest, and let me know when you finish!
This is a phonemic alphabet, although it does not account for glottal stops, etc.
[pP] = pig
[bB] = big
[f] = fine
[v] = vine
[F] = thin
[V] = then
[T] = bats
[s] = bass
[z] = is
[t] = ten
[dD] = den
[cC] = witch
[S] = wish
[j] = verge
[Z] = version
[kK] = cot
[gG] = got
[mM] = might
[n] = night
[lL] = gall
[N] = gong
[hH] = hello
[e] - bet
[A] - bait
[o] - bought
[a] - bat
[i] - bit
[O] - boat
[u] - but
[E] - beet
[U] - boot
[r] - burn
[I] - bite
[W] - bear
[R] - bar
[Q] - bow
[w] - bore
This is a code I invented.
Many of the capital letters are redundant to the lowercase equivalent:
To type a standard letter, the keys are:
Some letters or letter combinations can be written as accents over other letters (meaning never use these at the beginning of a word) to save space:
"e" = e; "h" = h; "he" = T; "ly" = L; "n" = n;
"r" = r; "s" = s; "ing" = G; "es" = X;
There are a few special rules:
-the 'r' accent can represent "er" but only at the end of a word
-o + [a,i,or u] can be written as one character:
"ou" = oU; "oa" = oA; "oi" = oI;
-the above rule also applies to "qu", which can be typed as qU;
-if a letter would be doubled, an accent is written under it to save space: "tt" = t`; "oo" = o`; etc.
-if an accent would be doubled, an accent is written under its base letter to save space: "inn" = in~; "bee" = be~; etc.
Only one accent can be below a character and one above. If any conflict, write the word in the most efficient way possible without any conflicts. If there is more than one equally efficient way to write a word, follow these rules:
-"e" has precedence - "ben" would be written beN, not bEn
-if ^ does not solve, just write the first letter as an accent rather than the second - "cans" would be canS, not caNs
-if there is a double [e,r,s,or n], only use ` or ~ to show it: never write "bee" as beE, only be~; never write "knee" as kNeE, only knE`;
if anyoNe finds a word that bReaks tT above RulX, let me know. also, fe~l frE` to cloNe tT font and make a Non-pixelized veRsion of it. if yoU do, let me know!
The written language of the Shal'Dran, or at least what can be matched to human text; The full Shal'Dranic alphabet contains some two hundred characters, many of which are contextual in their meaning. I've actually had this one on paper for a while now, but hadn't found a way to get it onto the computer untill I found this site.
