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.
- 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.
Sample text in the Lovecraftian alphabet
I am forced into speech because men of science have refused to follow
my advice without knowing why. It is altogether against my will that I
tell my reasons for opposing this contemplated invasion of the antarctic.
