yapusazh   yapusazh

yapusazh is the alphabetic representation of the Sinnish language (lidosazh in its own tongue). yapusazh and Sinnish were invented by Scott 'Blade' Hamilton for use in a series of stories and role-playing games set in an urban fantasy background.

Noteable features

  • yapusazh is an alphabet written from left to right like English.
  • There are two forms of yapusazh, a calligraphic script called yapuzhat ('smoke letters') and round form called yapuwer ('forest letters').
  • Each letter has a Sinnish name. The names for consonants start with the sound they symbolize. The names of the vowels have the vowel as the first (or only) vowel that appears in them.
  • In yapusazh, all vowels have descenders and all consonants have ascenders. The chul letter both ascends and descends.
  • There are a few optional ligatures for when the tuhr vowel follows certain letters.
  • In yapuwer all vowels have descenders. Consonants do not, but are written along the top of the line.
