KitseKitse

Kitse is a simple abugida, stylized to resemble many Brahmic scripts, and invented by Carl Buck. It is used to write the personal conlang Kala. "kitse" means to scribble, scrawl or graffiti in Kala. It was inspired by Ian James' Norstrilian script.

Notable features

  1. Type of writing system: abugida / consonant alphabet
  2. Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
  3. Number of symbols: 14 consonants and one vowel carrier, 6 vowel diacritics and 2 special characters that show labialization and palatalization
  4. The consonants were selected to be slightly featural, meaning that the plosives are similar, as are the nasals, etc.
