Liyahu    Liyahu

Liyahu is con-script and language invented by Xay Voong during the development of a role-playing video game. The core concepts are based on the trinity entities mind, body, and soul. The philosophy is rational, structural, straightforward, compact and concise.

Notable features

Character Composition

Letters and numbers are made of up three symbols - called vi - positioned around the skeleton, or skel - called nga. (Note the symbols may be color coded, but this is not necessary.)

Liyahu alphabet

Letters - called la - are written with mingavi (up skel) arranged either horizontally or vertically.


Liyahu vowels

Note: Some Latin consonants are used as vowels when romanizing Liyahu. These are q, j, c, and x. In other words, when you see these letters, treat them as vowels. So in addition to the original a, e, i, o, and u, there are nine vowels.


Liyahu consonants


Khuvi (or three-symbols) represent common, useful, culture-independent words.

Numbers are written with vangavi (down skel). The empty vangavi is also used to represent zero.

Punctuation marks are written with parts of the ngavi called kc (sounds like cat without t) in any of the eight directions that it is turned. Up is mi, down is va, left is fq, right is pa.
