Common Syllabics was created by Jonathon Grimes during the early 1990s
to write the main language used in a role playing game: Common. Jonathon
modelled Common Syllabics on the Cree syllabary
and on the Devanagari alphabet.
Written from left to right in horizontal lines
Diacritics are added to the basic consonant symbols
to indicate different vowel sounds.
Sample text in Common Syllabics
