Pékrif alphabet    Pékrif

The Pékrif alphabet was invented in 2001 by Zack Hart. It was initially created on a whim by designing letters based on a dictionary pronunciation guide, but it later became associated with the growing con-society of Ánhrush and its associated language of Gomain, which the Pékrif is used to write and in which the script's name means "collection of letters".

Notable features

  • The two forms shown for all but three letters are the independent form, on top, and and medial form, on the bottom.
  • Each of these letters are composed of the medial form, which serves as a core element, and an initial and final element on either side, which are often (but not always) symmetrical respective to each other.
  • The alphabet is written in a similar fashion to Arabic, although left-to-right: the letters change their form depending on where in a word they occur.
