Arabikkhara (اَرَبِخَّرَ)

Arabikkha was invented by Jirakit Meathanavanon when he noticed that there were no adaptations of the Arabic alphabet for Pali and Sanskrit on Omniglot yet. It is designed so that each sound of Pali and Sanskrit is represented by one letter.

Sample text in Pali

مَنعُوْپُبًّقَمَا ذَمَّا ، مَنعُوْسعِڟَّا مَنعُوْمَيَا ؛ مَنَسَا جعِيْ پَدُڟَّعِيْنَ ، ڤَاسَتِ وَا كَرعُوْتِ وَا ، تَتعُوْ نً دُخَّمَنوعِيْتِ ، جَكًّ وَ وَحَتعُوْ پَدً.


manopubbaṅgamā dhammā, manoseṭṭhā manomaya, manasā ce padaṭṭena, bhāsati vā karoti vā, tato naṃ dukkhamanuveti, cakkaṃ va vahato padaṃ.


Realities have mind as forerunner, have mind as chief, are formed of mind.
If, with a mind corrupted, one speaks or acts,
because of that, suffering follows him,
just as a wheel the foot of the ox pulling the cart.
