Kajarte Kajarte (ɔ̍u̍rɜ́)

Kajarte was designed by tegobash, a Polish student of Arabic, as an alternative way of writing Polish, Arabic and English using the Latin alphabet. It is based on another of his inventions, hand-written Kajara. Visually Kajara was loosely based on Arabic although it is difficult to see this resemblance in Kajarte. Since it is constructed from glyphs already existing in natural alphabets Kajarte is almost fully supported by most of the text editors.

Reading diacritical marks

Reading diacritical marks

The diacritical marks above the letter are first to be read. Then you read diacriticals below the letter. Sometimes you cannot write all diacriticals above just one character: for example, if you want to write word 'duch' (ghost)you will need to add an additional voiceless ɪ character: n̩ɪ̈ (or: n̩ʌ). Also sometimes you need to use ɪ because previous character does not look well with lots of diacritical marks.
