Dscript Dscript

Dscript is a new form of written script based on the Roman alphabet invented by Matthew DeBlock. It uses the standard 26 letter Roman alphabet also used for the English language.

What makes Dscript unique is that unlike other forms of Roman alphabet script it makes very little effort to have its characters resemble their original form, instead it focuses on conserving pen strokes and a cursive-like connection of all words. There has also been considerable effort put into other aspects, such as aesthetic appearance, avoidance of ambiguity and, possibly most important, its ability to be clearly and easy written and read both vertically and horizontally.

Dscript combines all the letters of a word in what often appears to be a single symbol, similar to Chinese characters except that longer words tend to seem "stretched" (tall in the vertical form and wide in the horizontal form).
