The Cibara alphabet was created by Ben Kantack on weekends for fun. He wanted to
design a script for English that looked something like Arabic. "Cibara" is "Arabic"
Cibara is used to write English phonetically. It is written left to right in vertical
columns. Letters in a word are connected by attaching the endpoints of one letter to the
next. Words are separated by spaces. The beginning and end of each sentence are marked by
attaching a circle to the beginning of the first letter of the first word and the end of
the last letter of the last word. The short vowels A, E, I, O, and U are turned into long
vowels by doubling their symbols.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
