Anoran wrote: However, I do feel that the complexity of the letters may not lend themselves to easy "at a glance" recognizance, ie. they'll be harder to read than Latin at a distance or if small, or if only briefly glimpsed.
Anoran wrote:Have you considered also perhaps having the most commonly used letters being the simplest?
Anoran wrote:That said, the alphabet is gorgeously beautiful, and would lend itself wonderfully to calligraphy. I'd like to see a book written in this sometime.

Anoran wrote:If you can provide some images or instructions on how to write each letters, that would be a step in the right direction.
Anoran wrote:Also, I noticed a lot of the characters have dot-like marks. Do these serve a specific purpose, or are they simply there to differentiate one letter from another?
Anoran wrote:I also noticed that most of the letters are simply another letter (or at least very similar), but rotated 180 degrees. Obviously, this is intentional, though I wonder, for what purposes? Omniglot is also missing three letters of your alphabet; I presume these are the rotated forms of b, i, and kh.
Anoran wrote:Additionally, does your script have majuscule (upper case) letters? They greatly augment readability by making it easy to determine where a sentence ends and begins, and what words are names rather than regular nouns.

Such as Cyrillic and Armenian? And Katakana/Hiragana? Chinese... Cherokee...
