The Langerian alphabet was created and developed in 2019 by Sam Langer as an alternative way of writing English, or a conlang using the Latin alphabet. It is based on several languages that are modified to suit the script's aesthetics.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
- Used to write: English
- The letters are all connected on a staff, similar to scripts such as Gurmukhi.
- Y is never a vowel in Langerian
- When two vowels are next to each other, the vowel symbols are placed side by side on one vowel carrier. The silent E never shares a vowel carrier with another vowel, because it has no symbol; it's just the vowel carrier.
- The letters D, H, J, K, S, T, W, and Y are placed above the next letter. If there is no next letter, it is placed on a vowel carrier. If the next letter is a vowel, however, it is placed below the next letter.
- In the alphabet chart, the vowel symbol is placed above the vowel carrier. This helps you identify them.
- Traditionally, if a word starts with B, C, F, G, M, R, X, or C, the writer adds a little extra length of staff at the beginning of the word.
