Sundanese script (Aksara Sunda) ᮃᮊ᮪ᮞᮛ ᮞ᮪ᮝᮛ (Aksara Sunda)

The Sundanese script (ᮃᮊ᮪ᮞᮛ ᮞ᮪ᮝᮛ - Aksara Sunda) developed from the Old Sundanese script (Aksara Sunda Kuno), which developed from the Pallava script. It was used between the 14th and 18th centuries, and was standardized during the 1990s. These days Sundanese is normally written with the Latin alphabet, however the Sundanese script is still used to some extent.
