Unal    Unal

Unal (short for "Universal Alphabet") was created by Alex Mason in October 2005. The idea behind Unal was to create an alphabet that could be used to write all western European languages as well as basic Cyrillic. Because of the similarity in the letters, Unal Cyrillic can easily be transliterated to Latin and vice-versa. Unal is Alex's 13th Con-script and the first he found complete enough to submit to Omniglot.

Notable features

  • Unal is written from left to right in horizontal rows.
  • Similar to Greek, Unal has an initial-medial as well as a final form for the letter "S".
  • Has the special characters and accents necessary to write: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Dutch, Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish and Icelandic.
  • Has been adapted to write Russian.
