The Incung script developed during the 14th century and is used to write the Kerinci language, a Malayic language spoken mainly in the Kerinci Regency of Jambi Province of Sumatra in Indonesia. It is thought to have descended from the Old Sumatran script.
The Incung script is also known as surat incung in Indonesian or surat incung in Kerinci. The word incoung means "slanted". The script is used mainly for decorative purposes on road signs, government office signs and on tourist trinkets. Kerinci is usually written with the Latin alphabet
Traditionally the Incung scirpt was written on bamboo, buffalo horn, bark or paper using a sharpened bamboo pen or quill. It was used to record traditional knowledge, historical events and religious texts. Efforts are being made to preserve and promote the use of the script.
Kamai bangga basuhat incoung, idak uhang kincai kalau dak pandai manulih incoung.
We are proud using the Incoung script, don't claim to be a native Kerinci person if you can't write with the Incoung script.
