Cilthic    Cilthic alphabet

Cilthic was designed by Daniel S. Andersen, for use in a fantasy world he is developing, called Sorukan. It is used to write a constructed language, also called Cilthic, which is spoken by over 20 million people in the Kainlo (Cínlo) Empire, a fictional country in Sorukan.

Daniel invites all those with an interest in his constructed world to learn more about it and visit his forum/website about the world (see below).

Notable features

  • Cilthic is written left to right, like English
  • Capital letters are used only to mark proper nouns and the beginning of sentences.
  • Punctuation marks are placed at the beginning of sentences.
  • Some vowels in Cilthic have an alternative form: a diacritic placed over the preceding consonant. Either the letter or diacritic may be used, depending on the aesthetic decisions of the writer.
  • The punctuation mark labeled as "number marker" defines a string of numbers, and must be placed preceding and following the number string.
  • Numbers are displayed in base-12. The ones place is leftmost, followed by the twelves place, then the 144s place, etc. Thus, the order of the numbers is reverse that of English.
  • The symbol labeled as (12) is a special symbol for the number twelve, never used in conjunction with other numbers over twelve. More commonly, twelve is written as [0][1] (0 ones and 1 twelve).
