The Serian alphabet was created by Ross Jallo, and is partly based on
the Arabic, Mongolian and Manchu scripts and also on a script which
appears in Gulliver's Travels.
Written in vertical colums running from left to right.
Vowels and diphthongs are indicated with diacritics.
Used to write
Serian, a language invented by Ross Jallo and inspired by Quenya and
Sindarin with vocabulary from Gothic, Welsh, Latin, Spanish, Finnish and German.
Notes on the diacritics
The diacritics are shown with a special 'place-holder' symbol which has no phonetic
value but merely 'carries' a vowel when the vowel is at the beginning of a word,
or (rarely) right after another vowel.
Notes on punctuation
Shown are the five kinds of stops in Serian attached to the letter Pa. The first four
are used much as periods, question marks, and exclamation points in English. The fifth
is a 'stronger' mark, used in poetry to denote ends of stanzas, in books to show chapter
ends, and placed at the ends of all documents.
