Durustal was developed by Adiljan as an alternative way to write Uyghur. The alphabet contains 35 letters, and partly resemble Cyrillic letters. Some extra letters are used to write foreign loanwords (e.g. ts, dz and v), or to supplement existing phonemes (e.g. i). In addition, there are 10 auxiliary characters used at the end of words. The name Durustal means "The Right One".
