The Aksara Beringin script was invented by Adam Damario in 2017. It is an alternative way to write in Indonesian. The characters were modeled from the twists of the hanging roots of the beringin tree (Ficus benjamina) - the tree is also a symbol of unity - which were then modified and simplified.
Note: The pronunciations of V, Q and X already have their local counterparts. As such, they are only used for names and foreign words.
As an example, in the word merek (brand), the first E is pronounced as É and the second as E.
In some circumstances, affixes change according to the first letter of the base word. When using the affix character, the base form remains unaffected but the pronunciation changes still. It can also be written in the regular alphabet without the affix character as the changed form. For example:
Semua orang dilahirkan merdeka dan mempunyai martabat dan hak-hak yang sama. Mereka dikaruniai akal dan hati nurani dan hendaknya bergaul satu sama lain dalam semangat persaudaraan.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
