An experimental abugida for Russian language.

Postby booBot » Wed 21 Oct 2009 12:46 pm

To be able to navigate around Ceylon I've learned Sinhala writing system.
(I was illegal to even possess a GPS equipment while in SriLanka, not to mention that there were no maps available)

I find the Abugida idea quite interesting.
Now I try to "invent" one for Russian language and have a look at what transpires - will it be more clumsy or will it save some writing efforts and so on.

I'll post my "materials" here soon.

:)

I'm thinking if the consonant clusters will make many consonant ligatures when writing. :P
Can you recognise this character?
Nope, it's not shāng. It is a 囧 with a hat which 囧ed its chin off!

I'd like to avoid these.
Seems, I'll need at least two "virama"-signs: the regular one, and the "soft-virama" to use instead of our current "ь" letter.

Nothing interesting to publish yet, still thinking around! :)

I've done abugidas for English.

So why would it be so difficult for Russian or other languages that use Cyrillic? But if anyone comes up with anything I'd like to see it.

Should be interesting indeed. If you came up with anything please post it.

How did this get into the Conlangery forum? I thought sure this thread was in the Conscripts forum where it belongs. :roll:
