qosta is a writing system created by Adam Heurlin (aka Arimah
Šaretésia Néotsánia) in early 2006
for his constructed language of the same name. The language is part
of Adam's fictional world, where it is spoken by a race of reptilian
- Written in horizontal lines from left to right.
- qosta is an abugida, where every consonant has the inherent vowel sound [a].
Consonants are modified by diacritics to change this vowel sound.
- There is also a vowel holder, used for words that begin in a vowel (or diphthong).
- The Latin transcription uses only lowercase letters.
