The Nusantara Script is an alternative script for Javanese, Indonesian, Malay and other languages, invented by Wahyu Wijaya Tirtariga in 2003. It resembles a script found on the Sukuh Temple, which dates from around 1437 AD, and was modeled on old scripts of Java dating from about the 8th to 16th centuries. As a result it can be used to write various languages.
All consonants have an inherent vowel /a/ except the glottal stop. Most of those letters, except the glottal stop and clusters, have sandangan forms. The sandangan forms cancel the vowel of the preceding letter.
Diacritics or dependent signs are called sandhangan.
Semua orang dilahirkan merdeka dan mempunyai martabat dan hak-hak yang sama. Mereka dikaruniai akal dan hati nurani dan hendaknya bergaul satu sama lain dalam semangat persaudaraan.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
