Absat script is the creation of Abdul Syukur Sugiharto, who
designed it to write his constructed language Gyza. The name
Absat comes from the first four letters: a, b, s, t.
- Writing system: alphabet
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal line
- Used to write: Gyza language
- Number of letters: 20 consonants, 5 vowels (a, i, u, o, y), and 1 reading mark, named hix’y.
- The letter y is always read as /ej/. So, Gyza is pronounced /gejza/.
- The letters h and x have different pronunciations depending where they appear in words.
- Some consonants become ejective when followed by /ə/.
- The hix’y mark (IPA: /xit͡s’ej/) indicates a glottal stop
