Loma Loma

The Loma syllabary was invented during the 1930s by Wido Zobo (Widɔ Zoɓo) of Boneketa in Liberia. It was used among the Loma people, mainly for personal correspondence, during the 1930s and 1940s to write Loma, a Southwestern Mande language spoken in Liberia. It is no longer used and Loma is now written with the Latin alphabet.
