Cylenian Script (Mðurok Cyleðr) Mðurok Cyleðr

Mðurok Cyleðr - Cylenian script - is an alphabet used to write the Cylenian languages, created by Dennis Dekker in 2013. The Cylenian language family consists of three living languages and two dialects that are spoken in Cylenia, a fictional country, and parts of its neighboring country, Carthamia. The Cylenian script is mainly used to write New Cylenian, Ðagen Cylenian and Nynöri.

Notable features

  • Type of writing system: alphabet
  • Written from left to right in horizontal lines.
  • Used to write New Cylenian, Ðagen Cylenian, Nynöri and in the past also Creole Cylenian and Espayenian (all conlangs).
  • The script has characteristic round letters due to the fact that Cylenian was written on parchment.
  • A double letter is not written as two same letters, but as the letter preceded by a vertical bar. This bar is attached to consonants that don't have a bar at their right.
  • The letter E is attached to most consonants. The E appears as a hook after consonants that have a vertical bar at their right.
  • The letter Gh is written without its hook when preceded or followed by an E or Gh.
  • The combination Si is written as Ky due to historical reasons. This explains why the Cylenian people don't call themselves Silenian.
  • Some consonants are transcribed using two Latin vowels. In case of a double consonant, only the first Latin consonant is repeated.
  • The Cylenian script uses a pental numbering system, due to the fact that a hand has five fingers. Cylenian people can count to 25 with their hands.
