Braellaf    Braellaf alphabet

The Braellaf alphabet is the creation of Jason Liekhus, who started work on it in July 2004 as a part of his fictional world project. He was inspired by some ideas that he had been researching, such as lenition and the phonetics of many Celtic and Germanic languages. The Alphabet's aesthetic quality was borrowed primarily from Greek and Cyrillic, though its mechanics are similar to Irish Uncial.

Internal history

The Braellaf alphabet is used to write Braeggydh as well as its many related dialects. Braeggydh acts as a lingua franca between the many tribes and communities of the people of Braedh, a sub-continent 1500 kilometers northeast of the Amenic Empire (see Sabethir).

The Braellaf alphabet evolved from a series of older, more angular glyphs that were general carved into wood or stone. Many characters were adopted from the block scripts of Godhva and Rimarh, which lie across Osg E Cilanoun, the sea southeast of Braedh. In later years the alphabet was revised and refined under Amenic influence and the importing of paper from the East.
