Stox Stox

Stox is a alternative script for English and other Indo-European languages invented by Jon McV. He chose the name Stox, which is pronounced like "stalks", because of the shapes of the letters.

Stox is related to Jon's other script, Blox, because both form words by grouping the letters with a similar sound-production device in the same group i.e. d, t, þ, and ð and n as all of these sounds are usually either pronounced dental or post-dental.

Notable features

  • Type of writing system: alphabet
  • Direction of writing: any
  • Used to write: English and other Indo-European languages
  • There are two different forms of the Stox script, the "book" version and the "cursive" version. The main difference between the two is that the book version uses a very important item called the "guide line" to direct the rest of the letters, as each letter has to form either a 90 degree or 45 degree angle with the guideline. The cursive form doesn't use the guideline. Since the letters do not have a 'stalk' to attach themselves to, they all start to curl and connect with one another rather than with the guide line itself.
  • Lines can run parallel to eachother and can connect where a 90 degree or 45 degree angle can be formed between the two letters.
