Nari alphabet  Nari alphabet

The Nari alphabet is the creation by Thomas Slawson ( It grew out a fascination with and study of various languages. Thomas is currently also developing an accompanying storyline of the imaginary people who will speak the Nari language. He has based the grammar of Nari on concepts borrowed from English, Hebrew, Russian and a few other languages, but has tried to keep the grammar very simple, avoiding exceptions and strange morphologies. He has endeavored with the words, however, to 'compose' completely new words, and has strived not to consciously borrow from other languages.

Thomas is a musician by practice (a composer specifically), and so his purpose was to focus on inventing words according to how he thought they should sound. Obviously this will result in the language being influenced by his culture and worldview, but that can't be avoided anyway.
