The Lovecraftian was invented by Simon Whitechapel to be used in a forthcoming sequel to David M. Mitchell's Lovecraft tribute The Starry Wisdom. It's intended for transliterating the Roman alphabet.

Notable features

  • Voiced plosives and fricatives are distinguished from unvoiced by use of a dot, but all other consonants, including 'c', have a unique form.
  • Vowels are based on star patterns
  • Punctuation marks are placed at the beginning of sentences.
  • There is no distinction between upper and lower case.

Transliteration

H.P. Lovecraft, At the Mountains of Madness (1936)
