The Rirasu alphabet was created by Samantha Phillips to write her invented language, Vijyal. In Vijyal, "rirasu" translates to "that which is written". At first, old rirasu, or "kla umi" was a CV syllabary, however the number of glyphs required as well as the use of ending consonants caused this syllabary to be abandoned. Rirasu was created as a way to represent the sounds of Vijyal with as few glyphs as possible.
Each glyph is assigned to one or a set of sounds. For example, "t" has only one sound, [t], while "h" has three sounds [ɸ], [h], and [x], and "a" changes from [a] to [ɔ]. This occurs because of sound change within the language itself.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
