Idiotish   Idiotish

The Idiotish writing system was created by Alex Book for his constructed language, Idiotish. The name comes from the fact that the language is so easy compared to other languages that anyone can learn it. There is no distinction between "good" and "well", no irregular verbs, no gender for objects, no case inflections, and only one way of saying "you". The vocabulary is taken from various languages, plus onomatopoeia.
