New Khasi Alphabet

This alphabet was devised by Jüda F. Kapu from Umbir in Meghalaya as a new way to write Khasi, a Khasic language spoken mainly in the state of Meghalaya in the northeast of India. Unlike the version of the Latin alphabet usually used to write Khasi, this alphabet distinguishes between short and long vowels.
