Empisava was created by Joseph J. Barretto in 2006 in an attempt to create: a vertical script that distinguished between consonant and vowel forms without the use of diacritics; a writing system that indicated the grammatical relationships of words (or phrases) within a sentence; and a system that appended punctuation to the end of words rather than having discrete forms
As with most vertical scripts, each letter has an initial, medial, and final form.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
