The Oa Writing System

So I decided to come up with a writing system.

  1. I really want to see the video about your number system. I created one there is base 12-60, like 12 as a small base and 60 as the big base. The numbers go up to 6, with the symbols having the numbers of lines or "sticks" of the number, I, V, Y, X, ¥(with only one line) and X crossed by a line. Then, you put a dot at the top of it to 7-11 numbers, from every dozen you add a symbol that represent that dozen (-,+,triangle, square) and then when it reach 60 you add +1 at the left of the numbers and start again, like our system

  2. Very interesting, i also created a alphabet where the letters are draws of the mouth, but mine is more organic and practical and use accents, • for a "stronger" or close sound, like b and p, wich are the same but with more "force" and – for a "distorced" or voiced one, i don't know the linguistic term, but is like j and sh, n and nh (i think you don't have nh in english, but whatever), b and m, d and "th", and other examples. It consists in 14 basic letters, 5 vowels and 9 consonants, and 36 on total, 14 vowels.

  3. My wrigting system is based in accentuacion, so k sound with and accent wold be g sound, J sound with accent wold be "sh" sound and so on. The letters are based in the form of the tongue and teeth but they are not so logicall as yours and are easier to wright

  4. I can only approve your decision of taking hangul as the main source of inspiration for your writing system (even if no one cares about my approval, but I give it anyway ;p ). Hangul is by far the most simple, efficient and elegant writing system I know. Excellent choice!

    (Y is a vocal/vowel in Nordic languages)

    Also: Do ya' think that this will be included in the Unicode Standard.. for shits and giggles? They already have Klingon (Block U+F8D0 – U+F8FF (ConScript Unicode Registry), Rejected (Unicode)) and Tolkins Elvish (Tengwar) is reserved for future use (Block U+016000 – U+01607F (Unicode), block U+E000 till U+E07F (ConScript Unicode Registry))

  6. Something you could do is, because you said left to right is boring but logical, another slightly logical thing you could do is similar to Japanese, but instead to the left. Here's a diagram. (I was going to add "Symbol" Or just dashes, but that would've taken a while and proved difficult, but you get a good, general idea. So you go up to down, right to left.

    HW = labial velar approximant. NG = nasal K. e = schwa.
    M = Makira
    N = Nohwolo
    NG = Ngopoti
    P = Potike
    T = To' ike
    K = Korike
    Glottal Stop = oa' ano
    F = Folomo
    V = Voropo
    S = Selika
    Z = Zonolo
    X = Xidna
    HW = Hwoilipo
    H = Hilopia
    BR = Bropia
    RR = Rromia
    J = Yomato
    R = Ropila
    L = Loibri
    I noticed that all of them end with vowels, and so it gives a Polynesian feeling. Bye!

  8. Does anyone else have a conlang that uses Korean hangeul or that has a writing system based on it? One of my conlangs is called Nanga (낭아) and uses hangeul, but some symbols are taken out and some sounds are changed.

  9. Now, this may be the first iteration of your script, but what would happen if Oa speakers and writers started simplifying the glyphs? Is it possible that over time, this alphabetic system in syllable blocks might transform into an abugida or a syllabary as glyphs are merged by those crunched for time?

  10. I disagree with two things:
    1. Squares and straight edges are hard. Lines should be soft.
    2. The block system should not be needed. It adds unneeded complexity.

    The featural system is very nice though. By making the graphemes narrower it can be written sequentially.
