Cwirhald is yet another alphabet created by the people in Dardaniell, the fictional world invented by Pieter Rottiers. Cwirhald is a Dardain word meaning Hand of the king, since it is the writing system introduced by King Dhincarian himself, though it is believed the actual inventor of the script was his royal advisor, Waeleryn. The biggest difference between Cwirhald and most of the ancient scripts is that it is an alphabet in the true meaning of the word, with separate vowel signs instead of diacritics.
Like Sadhain, Cwirhald uses only four basic forms to cover this section of the alphabet.
Sonorants are those consonants that are voiced and can never be made voiceless, and that can be produced continuously at the same pitch. In Cwirhald these are separated in four subgroups: nasals (m, n and ŋ), liquids (l and r), semi-vowels (j and w) and the h.
