The Lodarliel script was invented by Ralph Saenz, who became
interested in making up writing systems and languages in the spring
of 2005. About one year later, he came across a chart of the English
alphabet in Braille and memorized it in a few hours. Then a couple of
days later he experimented by connecting the dots together and found
that if you put together the letters in connected form, it created a
unique character. He uses it to write Lodarliel, his invented language,
- Type of writing system: alphabet / syllabic
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines.
- Used to write: Lodarliel, and any language written with the Latin alphabet
To create a C-V-C, CC-V-C, or a C-V-C-V character, first you write the first two letters in
Lodarliel (CC-V or C-V). Then you add the rest of the Lodarliel letters (C, or C-V) where there
is space. (either underneath, or next to) Here are examples of each:
Obron phere lal unam ebnigsi rae nad cheula ni gidinyt nad girhitsi. Newode thiw
ersano raeyeth nad nocsicnec nad oxlud cat wotradsa noe nathore ni siptiroth pho borethodo.
(Raitcel 1 pho nuvirelasath cedalaritno pho unam girhitsi)

are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
