Areil Cirith    Areil Cirith

Areil Cirith is an alphabet created by Heather Reyes in 2006. She designed the alphabet as a means of writing her conlang, Kulionth. It was originally inspired by Tolkien's Tengwar, but does not much resemble Tengwar in its present form. The script was designed to look flowing and elegant, while still being practical to write.

Notable features

  • Type of writing system: alphabet
  • Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
  • Used to write: Kulionth (conlang)
  • Vowels are diacritics which are written over the consonants that precede them
  • When a word begins with a vowel, or when there are two vowels in a row, a vowel holder is used
  • The order of the consonants is based on the degree of closure. For example, the first set of consonants are stops, the second and third sets are fricatives, and the fourth set is made up of approximants.
  • There are special letters for "en" and "eth," the Kulionth words for "a" and "the".
