Avorentas HGV    Avorentas HGV

Avorentas HGV was designed by Attila Répai with the aim of creating an alphabet that is easy to memorise due to its small number of base signs (17). The letters can represent all the 46 sounds of Hungarian and his constructed language Avorenta without any digraphs or trigraphs. The shape of the letters was inspired by the blackletter fonts of medieval codices. It is used to write Avorenta and Hungarian, but it is also suitable for other languages that use the same sounds such as Latin, Spanish, German, Turkish, Finnish, Croatian, Russian etc. HGV stands for Háfrigvotán, the name of the script in Avorenta.

HGV has two types: Aromittáta HGV (calligraphic HGV) and Linnáta HGV (handwritten HGV).
