sitelen sitelen is a hieroglyphic script devised by Jonathan Gabel as an alternative way to write Toki Pona, a Pidgin-like language invented by Sonja Lang. sitelen sitelen is based on the toki pona hieroglyphs script (sitelen pona), symbols found in graffiti and comics, early pagan and Christian signs and symbols, Egyptian Hieroglyphs, the Chinese script, the Mayan script, Mi'kmaq symbols and the Naxi Dongba script. It can be used either as a syllabary or as a logographic script.
The image on the top right of this page shows a way to write sitelen sitelen in the syllabic version of the sitelen sitelen script.
The sitelen sitelen syllabic script is made up of the following basic symbols:
The first symbol in the consonant row is used with vowels without an accompanying consonant.
These can be combined together to form all the syllables found in Toki Pona:
jan ale li kama la jan ale li ken tawa ona. jan ali li jo e pona sama e ken. ona li jo e sona e pona pi jan ante li wile pali e ni: jan li lon tawa jan ante kepeken kon pi mama sama.
