The Nawa alphabet was created by Arturo Jiménez Zavala as an alternative way to write Spanish and Nahuatl. It is a writing system for Nahuatl based on Aztec designs, and a simplified way to write Spanish that eliminates homographs, such as c, q and k for [k], digraphs (ch, ll and rr) and the silent h.
The letter y/ll is pronounced [ʤ] in Spanish and [j] in Nahuatl.
