Wiqa

Wiqa

The Wiqa ([ˈwi:tʃʌ]) script was created in 2023 by Scott Printz to write his conlang of the same name. It was inspired by Hangul, Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics and human speech anatomy.

Wiqa is unusual in how it divides syllables. Unlike most abugidas, in which consonant-vowel units represent consonants followed by vowels (CV), Wiqa symbols represent a vowel preceding a consonant (VC). This feature is ideally suited for the polysynthetic Wiqa language as most morphemes begin with a vowel and end with a consonant. This unusual onset-rime arrangement is shared with the Khom and Zhuyin Fuhao scripts.
