Úrogham

Úrogham

Úrogham ([ˈuːrˠoːəmˠ]) was invented by C. Ryan Moniz as a script adaptation of the Ogham alphabet to be used for Modern Irish (Gaeilge), though it could be adapted for other languages that use the Latin alphabet. The writing style is based on a postulation of what Scholastic Ogham might have looked like if it had continued to be used until the present.

The Úrogham alphabet

The pronunciation rules for standard Irish should be followed. Lenition is represented with a small circle added near the lenited letter, reminiscent of the dot diacritic used in Gaelic script, rather then adding the letter h as in modern Irish orthography. The consonants are grouped in columns to be as close to their original Ogham groupings as possible, though some of the original letters have been omitted. For each letter, the horizontal and vertical version, respectively, are given.
