CWS

Sorry for not getting this posted sooner, I had a huge project due friday and yesterday I was busy being lazy. And watching a pirated copy of Pirates Of The Caribbean 3.

Anyway: I present to you, my alphabet! Known as CWS, or Chris’s Writing System (aren’t I so creative?):

Several things require explanation: first of all, I did it in flash. Never attempt to write out your fictional alphabet in flash. It’s just not really very pretty. Second, despite the variation in letter sizes, all letters are supposed to be roughly the same size. I just made the capitals look mondohumgeous because they’re more detailed.

Thirdly, there are just some rules of CWS that are not what you call self-evident. I shall go over these now (along with helpful examples!):

1) Every word begins with a capital.

“I am god” –

2) When using vowels: Use Atvas vowels first. If there are two consecutive vowels, place a Naros above the Atvas.

“Book” –

When three consecutive vowels occur, surround the Naros with a number of dots equal to the number of peaks on the Atvas

“Beauty” – – the u-Atvas has four peaks.

3) After a capital letter, the Atvas of a vowel is always used, even if the capital is a vowel.

4) The y-Atvas is used only after a vowel, and the y-Naros is used only after a consonant.

“Bay” – , “Wry” –

5) The last down-stroke of the last letter in a word may be left off, or kept on. Both are correct.

“Bar” – , ; “Rad” – ,

6) Punctuation is placed immediately after a word, and the next word continues without any space between.

“I am god. You?” –

And that’s my alphabet. If you’ll notice, it is entirely cursive – there is no non-cursive form of this alphabet. There’s also no way to represent numbers as of yet, but whatever. Next post I’ll begin diagramming my language, CLS (bet you can’t guess what that stands for)

    Neat! I like it. I imagine you don’t have Illustrator, or you could have used that instead. It would have worked a lot better. I could trace these for you with it, if you like.

    (Send me an email since I will probably not check this page)

    That WRYYYYYY didn’t have nearly enough Ys. Try harder next time.

    This is really good, though. You should translate part of the Bible or something.

    Actually, I already have the lord’s prayer in old english in CWS written on my main lesson folder in school. Which is what I do during Trigonometry. Transliterate things.

    It’s more similar to arabic, really. Post # 2 shouldn’t make you cry inside; he just thinks I should translate part of the bible because it’s a very well-known work of epic scale.
