The Cibara alphabet was created by Ben Kantack on weekends for fun. He wanted to design a script for English that looked something like Arabic. "Cibara" is "Arabic" backwards.
Cibara is used to write English phonetically. It is written left to right in vertical columns. Letters in a word are connected by attaching the endpoints of one letter to the next. Words are separated by spaces. The beginning and end of each sentence are marked by attaching a circle to the beginning of the first letter of the first word and the end of the last letter of the last word. The short vowels A, E, I, O, and U are turned into long vowels by doubling their symbols.
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.
