Quechua Syllabics (ᕆᐠᒡᕙ ᓯᕆᐤ ᕤᒻᐸ)

Quechua Syllabics was invented by Nima Farid, and is a way to write Quechua languages with Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics. Not all Quechua languages or dialects will use every single syllabic proposed, but hopefully, all of the required syllabics in each specific language or dialect is covered in this invention. The name of the script, ᕆᐠᒡᕙ ᓯᕆᐤ ᕤᒻᐸ (Qhichwa siq'i llumpa), means "Quechua writing System".

This particular script was designed for Quechua specifically, but it can also be further refined for use of Aymara, Guarani and other nearby indigenous languages in South America.
