Romanabic is a modified version of the Arabic script designed to
write English. It was created by Thomas Maska (TomMaska@aol.com),
who has always liked the Arabic script and wanted to make it more
accessible to English speakers.
- Romanabic is written from right to left in horizontal lines.
- The letters have different shapes depending on whether they
appear at the beginning, middle or end of a word or on their own.
- The vowels are indicating by diacritics which appear above
or below a special vowel carrier.
Sample text in Romanabic
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
(Part of article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
