The Hopyratian Alphabet was created by David Tait. It is used
to write the Hopyratian Language spoken by the people of Holic Wood
in the land of Sepistania. Originally hieroglyphic, the alphabet
evolved by taking inspiration from Tengwar by J.R.R Tolkien and the
Greek Alphabet resulting in a more suitable writing system for Hopyratian.
There are two types of letters that represent vowels. When a vowel
is at the beginning or end of a word or after another vowel, it is written
with a stem. When a vowel is in between two consonants or in between a
consonant and vowel, it is written without a stem. Long vowels are always
written with a stem and also have a line underneath.
- Hopyratian is written from left to write
- Consonants are doubled by writing a colon beside it
- There are no names for letters

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.
