Lawrlang alphabet

Lawrlang alphabet

The Lawrlang alphabet was invented by Lawrence Barss in 2016. It is used to write the conlang of the same name, also invented by Lawrence Barss. It is a completely phonetic alphabet and uses marks to show voiced consonants.

The Lawrlang language itself is uninflected and has only three tenses: past, present and future. There are no auxiliaries, only endings to indicate the tense. Almost all adjectives can be converted to adverbs by adding a suffix.
