Chetlivitsa Chetlivitsa

The Chetlivitza alphabet was designed by Todor Nikolov from Bulgaria in 2015. It is based on Cyrillic and Latin alphabets, as well partially on the Glagolitic and Greek alphabets. The name Chetlivitza (Четливица) is not word in Bulgarian, but sounds like a word for "readable alphabet".

The idea of this alphabet is to unite the Cyrillic and Latin alphabet, as well partially Greek alphabet in one alphabet as the letters to be easy for read for these who know one of these alphabets or not hard to learn them. Second idea is that all letters to be maximum close somehow visual to all selected alphabets. The names of the first 3 letters are connected or related with the names of early Cyrillic alphabet as pronouncing of all names of the letters is written on English.
