Finnish Script (suomalainen kirjaimisto)    Finnish Script

The Finnish script was invented by Sascha Mücke in an effort to create a writing system for Finnish that reflects the language's phonological simplicity and clarity with its perfectly symmetric vowel harmony.

Notable features

Within a word the letters are placed directly adjacent to and connecting to each other, continuing lines should ideally be written with a single stroke (e.g. when writing no the diagonal lines of n and o should be written as one stroke). Words are separated by spaces, punctuation marks are the same as in the Latin script, optionally centered vertically (as in the example below). Also the script uses Arabic numbers.

Translation

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.
