Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics for Kalaallisut (ᑲᓛᐧᓕᓱᑦ)

This script is an adaptation of Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics for the Kalaallisut (Greenlandic) language devised by Tristan an Arzhig. Most Inuit languages and dialects in Canada use a version of the CAS writing systems, and since Kalaallisut is phonologically and morphologically consistent with them, it makes sense to propose a way to use the syllabics for it.
