Vembrish

script name

This is another easily hand-written, phonetically constructed alphabet from my Phonological Cypher series. It is a cursive syllabic alphabet in a similar style to Tullish, using vowel shapes that mirror some consonants in a similar manner to Idensh.

Consonants

All consonants stand on the baseline and connect at the right to their vowel (or semivowel, see below). The null consonant is used for the second vowel of a diphthong. Syllabic-final nasals have a special form.

The semivowels can attach between a consonant and a main vowel. Initially they take the glottal consonant. There is also a medial aspiration marker.

Vowels

Vowel shapes mirror some consonant shapes, and attach to their consonant. Most rounded vowels have a doubling of the loop. The solo form is used in diphthongs. For a syllabic-final non-nasal consonant the “no vowel” shape is attached.

Example

This is the first line of Shakespeare’s sonnet 18, for comparison with versions of SIGIL etc.

Shall I compare thee to a summerís day?
