Using Cyrillic to Write Arabic

Postby azrin_kiko » Sat 25 Sep 2010 5:18 pm

After creating Sirilgeul, a system to write Korean in Cyrillic. My next project will be devising a way to write Arabic in Cyrillic alphabet. After experimenting with various letters ranging from archaic yus letters to neutral yer. This is the draft for Arabic Cyrillic. (After perfection and comments, i may send my alphabet to Simon) (I know the fact that no alphabet will replace arabic abjad to write arabic)

I think this looks better than other Cyrillic versions of non-Slavic languages.

Well, it will not replace arabic but can be used as transliteration system for muslims living in Cyrillic world.

Just the most acceptable answer would be for fun :lol:
It now makes me want to make a Cantonese Cyrillic alphabet. :roll:
Can you recognise this character?
Nope, it's not shāng. It is a 囧 with a hat which 囧ed its chin off!

telal, just what exactly is your problem? Do you find the idea of writing Arabic in any other writing that offensive?

azrin_kiko, a few suggestions if you don't mind, for example Ѳѳ for [θ], Ҳҳ for [h], Ꙣꙣ/Ꙃꙃ for dad, Ꙃꙃ/Ҫҫ for saad, and maybe even Ҵҵ for dhaa’.

Telal just does not understand the concept of the "Cyrillic world". It is similar to other concepts like the "Western world", "Muslim world", "Arabic world", "Christian world", "Latin world", "Slavic world" or "Slavdom" (quite popular where I live), etc. Don't worry about him. He's just square.

What do you mean by looks better? Care to explain?

There is a certain flow to Cyrillic. It is a square script and certain aesthetic rules apply. For example, I always found Old Slavonic orthography appealing because all words end in vowels or the yers. Similarly this version of Cyrillic has a certain flow to it, a certain combination of letters that make it look appealing, I do not know how to explain it.
