Languan    Languan alphabet

The Languan alphabet was created by Zach McVay during the summer of 2004 and was originally based on how the italicized Latin alphabet looks when read upside-down. The alphabet was used a great deal in writing various conlangs created by Zach, and has evolved a great deal from its original form. It is now used to decoratively write the Languan language (based on Castillian Spanish). It is also used in the writing of poems. Other instances, such as the writing of books, use a form of the Latin Alphabet, created in January 2005.
