Kepom Kepom

The Kepom alphabet was invented by James Ong Zhi Siang to write his constructed language, Argusian. It is also known as the Argusian script, and is an abugida or consonant alphabet with letters for consonants, and diacritics for vowels. The diacritics are written above and/or below the consonants that precede them. If no consonant precedes them, they are attached to the vowel carrier.
