Gryirhanli   Gryirhanli

The Gryirhanli phonemic alphabet was created by Misha Volavka with no real function in mind other than to have a script of hers displayed on Omniglot. It is her second conscript, the first being kept a secret because it is used for personal notes, not that anyone would likely want to go through much trouble to decipher them. This script was an experiment in aesthetics, it is structured nearly exactly the same as her first script but appears more fluid on the page and includes numerals. The name has no etymology, it just seemed to fit the look of the script.
