Lampung Script Aksara Lampung

The Lampung script is used to write Lampung, a Malayo-Polynesian language spoken in the Indonesian province of Lampung in southern Sumatra. It is used to some extent on road signs, government logos and elsewhere, and is taught in some schools. In the past it was used to write spells, letters, traditional laws, religious works and poems. It was written on bark, palm leaf, metal plates, animal skin, horn, stone and bamboo. After Islam spread to Indonesia the Lampung script was replaced by the Arabic script. Nowadays Lampung is generally written with the Latin alphabet.
