What I'm up to

I had a brainwave last night, so now I'm making a *third* constructed alphabet for Traipahni words. The first two, Dven'Ahndahn and Dven'Bahnis, are very vowel-centric, but this one is even more so. DA and DB both have characters for sounds like AHL, IHL, ER, and similar. But there's no logic to it, and there are a limited number of those. It shortens some words but others remain rather long. Some words are shorter in DA or DB than in roman characters, others are longer. I wanted a version with a greater potential for word shortening.

The brainwave I had was to give it a logic. The simplest is to drop consonants inside of the vowels, something pretty easy with some of the vowel symbols and difficult or impossible with others. So I've been coming up with other vowel symbols for the difficult ones, and simpler consonants to fit inside. But coming up with symbols that match the style of the existing characters and look good AND fit, is difficult. I have the vowels figured out, now I'm working on the consonants.

Once it's done, I'll have fewer characters to remember, and a lot more flexibility.

LOL

Your morality is 0% in line with that of the bible.
 

Damn you heathen! Your book learnin' has done warped your mind. You shall not be invited next time I sacrifice a goat.
