The Sauropoda Alphabet was constructed in 2016 by Ken D. It is used by the fictional Sauropoda people (also created by Ken D) to write their language, Sa'ore'ya.
The language was devised approximately 180,000 Sauropoda years ago (1,800 years in human time) on their native planet Oluwa-66. They created an alphabet in order to write down historical records of their battles against the Terrapoda people and other alien colonizers. As the Sauropoda were not familiar with the concept of written language, they used simple mathematical-shapes (squares) to construct their block-shaped letters.
The alphabet is composed of 52 symbols; 28 consonants (including clicks and glottal-stops), 22 vowels, two basic punctuation marks, space symbol, an ʻokina (glottal stop)and a fullstop. The script is traditionally written on dried palm-leaves, or in the sand. The script is also a linguistic alternative for the Latin and English alphabets.

Today we managed to kill about two-thousand Terrapoda warriors. The blue sun dazzled as we fought and kept the enemies at bay with our spears till they perished. We will continue keeping these Terrapoda from invading our beautiful land.
