Well, ð is an existing letter, as well as ђ. The long markers are also not invented but used since a long time, or did I understand your list incorrectly? :shock:

nah, I of course didn't invent them. Just reassigned the use. ð as a voiced th and the other symbol as its capital. As for the long symbols, I had to create the long ae, but that was it.

ð is actually used as voiced "th" (e. g. Icelandic). The other symbol is an unrelated Serbian Cyrillic letter, though. I've seen the æ with the macron in documents about Old English.

Well, enough nit-picking from my part. :D

Yeah I was wondering about the 's' and the 'z' with the line through them. As for the æ with macron over it I've seen it too in Old English. I also use it for my conlang Næsu as well as the æ with the accute acent over it.

I like both of them too bad I can't type them on here. :(

The barred Z is still used in German instead of the normal Z by some people (like me).

Nah, I just decided to change to the barred Z, because you could confuse the normal one with a 2 too easily (which would have been very inconvenient in maths classes). ;)

I do this too. In English and German. I write my z's with a line, my 7's with a line, and my zero's with a slash.

So, I am having to actually train myself not to use my normal z when writing toytonic.

Has anyone ever seen the lined 's'? I can't find it anywhere.

I know. I cross my Z's too every now and then. I cross my 7's too so they look like this: [s]7[/s].

Has anyone seen the lined 's'?


Yes. But are you talking about in hand writing or in languages?

Some people cross their 0's too so it looks like the Danish letter ø.

If you guys want to see some actual sentences in the true orthography you can check out the updated wiki. I've mainly just put stuff into the actual letters.

I think it makes for a nice looking script:

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

Quite well - unfortunately I'm a perfectionist, and I'm still workin on some ligatures... But you WILL see it (someday). ;)

Well, SAMPA is a nice crutch for the internet, but I find it ugly... Although it's very useful for this site.

Käläli Latin Script

Vowels:

a e i o u ä ë ö *ü æ

Consonants:

b p d g k ķ h l m n ñ ŋ q r s š z ž č đ f j t v w y

* ü is used in place of ui when written in the Latin Orthography. ui can also be used as well.

Note: Käläli is normally written with it's native script call Ägaķi. I'll post a sample of the script later.
