Gagarit Abada    Gagarit Abada

The Gagarit Abada was created by Dr. Modh Zakaria Ilyas in the 1970s as an alternative way of writing his native language, Kadazandusun. It is based on the scripts used in southern India descended from the Brahmi script.

The word Gagarit comes from the word garit (to stratch, to bruise), and Abada comes from the first three letters of the Kadazandusun alphabet (a, b, d).
