Svatsëmi Svatsëmi

Svatsëmi was invented by Alexander Ferguson in 2013 to write languages he invented for his fictional world, Išnakey. He originally wanted to create a language similar to Japanese, but over time it had evolved into an a priori language that sounds closer to Slavic languages. Svatsëmi means "Written Tsëmi" in Tsëmi. The alphabet is based on many of the writing systems derived from Phoenician: Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Cyrilic, Coptic and Latin.
