The Slavic script was created in 2019 by Nikola Jović as an alternative to the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets for the sake of Slavic unity, free from the religious and nationalistic connotations of the current scripts.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
- Used to write: Slavic languages
- Stress. This indicates where the stress in a word is. It goes under vowels and/or syllabic consonants.
- Length/Gemination. This indicates a long vowel and/or a double consonant.
- Length + Stress. This indicates a vowel that is both long and stressed, or a syllabic consonant that is both long/geminated and stressed.
- Rising pitch accent. This is automatically stressed, and if long it is placed above the length marking.
- Falling pitch accent. This is automatically stressed, and if long it is placed above the length marking.
- Capitalization marking. The Slavic script is a single case script, and so if a "capital letter" is needed to distinguish one word from another (i.e. Liberal vs. liberal), the capital marking is used. It goes above the letter, unless the letter has an ascender -then it goes below.
Sample text in the Slavic Script
Transliteration (Cyrillic alphabet)
Хеј Славени јоште живи реч наших дедова
док за народ срце бије њихових синова
Живи живи дух Славенски живеће веков'ма.
Transliteration (Latin alphabet)
Hej Slaveni jošte živi reč naših dedova
dok za narod srce bije njihovih sinova
Živi živi duh Slavenski živeće vekov'ma.
Hey Slavs there still lives the word of our grandfathers
while for the nations beats the hearts of their sons
There lives there lives the Slavic spirit it will live for ages.
(Lyrics to the anthem 'Hey, Slavs')
