Lhemvrin eicrýs (literally Lembrin writing) was invented by Sander Dieleman
to write Lembrin, a constructed language serving as ceremonial language for
Lemuria, a micronation. Lhemvrin eicrýs was originally an adaptation of another
conscript, called Lemurian vulgar, invented by Sander in 2004. Over the course
of two years Lhemvrin eicrýs gradually moved away from its origin, though there
are still a lot of similar characters.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
- There is no punctuation, except for a horizontal line indicating
the beginning of a sentence and a dot indicating a pause in speech
(corresponding roughly to a comma).
- A few of the letters can also function as numbers. Lembrin's number
system is duodecimal (base-12). In a number, the digits go in descending order.
