Falandril    Falandril (Avalandril Dgiribatu)

The Falandril alphabet (Avalandril Dgiribatu) was invented by Adam Trotter (adam[at]astrotter[dot]com) in 1987, since when the shapes of the letters have evolved considerably. Adam use his alphabet as a secret shorthand for taking sensitive notes or for transcribing poetry, mainly in Standard American English. He has found it flexible enough to record most European languages, includling French, Spanish, German, and Russian, and also uses it to write his invented language, Falandril.
