Inglisuraya (ܐ̤ܢ̇ܓܠܝ̣ܣܘ̣ܪܝܝܐ)

Inglisuraya is a way to write English with the Syriac script devised by Allison Powell. She chose the Syriac script because she believes it is neglected, largely forgotten, and deserves a chance. She hopes that this adapation will maybe spark a revival of this remarkable script. She uses it to write notes, journal entries, shopping lists and short stories.

Inglisuraya is largely phonetic and was inspired by the way the Hebrew script is used to write Yiddish, and the Arabic script is used for Uyghur, especially Yiddish.

The name Inglisuraya (ܐ̤ܢ̇ܓܠܝ̣ܣܘ̣ܪܝܝܐ), comes from a combination of the Syriac word for English, ܐܸܢܓܠܝܼܣ (inglīs), and the Syriac word for Syriac, ܣܘܼܪܵܝܵܝܐ (surāyā) to make “Syriac English.”.
