Kagangana

Kagangana

Kagangana is an alternative way to write Indonesian, and other regional languages in Indonesia, using Japanese katakana invented by Erlangga Saputra. Its name derived from syllables ka, ga and nga which commonly appear as three first syllables of traditional scripts in Indonesia.

Erlangga Saputra is an Indonesian student who started to learn Japanese in 2017. He expects that this script could be a new style to write Indonesian as an unofficial writing system for Indonesian youngers who are interested in Japanese and especially for both of Indonesians and Japaneses to relate each other.
