Lóngwén   Lóngwén

The Lóngwén script is the creation of Pangus Ho (xeno_vivre@yahoo.co.uk). Pangus was inspired to create it during a particularly tedious Biology class and modelled the letter shapes on the Thai alphabet. The name means "Dragon Language" and is written 龙文 in Chinese characters. Pangus chose this name because the shapes of the letters remind him of dragons and he was born in the year of the dragon.
