Bae Jun created the T-8 alphabet while serving in the Air Force.
It is named after his detachment's alias. He originally devised T-8 to write a
conlang he was working on, but has since abandoned that conlang project. T-8 was
modelled mainly on Arabic, Runes and Ogham.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Writing direction: written from right to left in vertical lines running
from top to bottom.
- Each letter has three forms: initial, medial and final.
- Vowels are written with diacritics that appear on the right of the consonants.
- The two dots by some of the letters can be written on top of one another
or side by side.
Sample text in the T-8 alphabet in Esperanto
Ĉiuj homoj estas denaske liberaj kaj egalaj laŭ digno kaj rajtoj. Ili
posedas racion kaj konsciencon, kaj devus konduti unu al alia en spirito
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)
