A Script for Your Language


10 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Jan 31, 2017

I would be honored to be part of making your constructed language.

I can invent a script to write your language in, and send you a PDF file of the result. For this service I would only be making alphabets or consonantal systems, and I could make a syllabic system for an extra ten simbi, but not Chinese type logographic systems (which are basically whole languages in themselves).

You can send me anything about your language that you believe would help make a fitting script for it, but here is some suggested information if it can be provided:

- the sounds used in the language (if there are sounds not used in English you can give the IPA symbol, or try to describe it)

- scripts you would like yours to resemble in some degree ("Mainly Hebrew, with the coldness of Cyrillic, and perhaps a touch of Tamil.")

- how strict it should be (whether a letter can stand for two sounds, like "X", or if two letters can make the same sound, like "K" and "C", or if a sound needs two letters, like "Th", or if a letter can be used for more than one sound, like every letter in the English alphabet)

- something about the culture of those who use the script (grasp shoulders in greeting, historically live in the cold, trade is considered the work of noblemen)

- a lexicon, grammar, translated material, general information of the language (Ker = And, En- = past tense, "Bassa noyi dal" = "Sail with the wind", an ancient language of nobility)

- example symbols of the sort you would like (drawn by you, or taken from an existing script)

- any preferences regarding writing direction and punctuation (written in columns from bottom to top, columns ordered from left to right, pages ordered from right to left, words separated by dots, sentences separated by spaces)

Training & Qualifications

I love writing systems, ciphers, symbols, and scripts. I have created more than twenty already, with more than that of ideas for them: folders fulls of papers in the other room. Not all of them even use letters.

I also have in the works something to replace the unimaginative and untypeable IPA.

Availability & Preferences

Tuesday through Friday, about 9:30 am through 5:00 pm

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Patrick Lauser

I am a lover of Yahweh, and of all who love Yahweh, a purveyor of the strange things of our Maker. Your neighbour taking out their garbage on a different day than normal would be strange, which is ...obviously not what I'm talking about, so to specify I call the strange things I purvey using the term "OOM" (Of Our Maker). For a thing to be that kind of strange, to be an OOM, that thing must fall heavily enough in one or more arms of the OOMlich Hex, which are: Surreal Grotesque Sexual Symbolic Unpolished Textured The Surreal The closest thing to "OOMlich" in a more familiar word. Where fiction can express what history cannot, and fantasy can express what mere fiction cannot, the Surreal can express what mere fantasy cannot. The Grotesque The gruesome, horrifying, disturbing, ugly, these are right aims of an artist, as well as the beautiful and comforting. The Sexual Few things are as naturally, celestially, and deeply strange as sexual intercourse, and the intimacies which radiate from that perfect centre. The Symbolic The mystery of curious symbols, why people try to interpret dreams, why other languages are used in fictional magic, why languages and scripts in general are OOMlich in concept and aesthetic. The Unpolished Why a child's drawing, or movies from the late 1900s, are often OOMlich, and also one reason this rather ungainly hex is itself OOMlich. The cheesy, edgy, grunge, rough-cut, the attraction of things even oneself dislikes. The Textured Refers to an aspect in the other aspects: how repeating patterns are part of the surreal, how trypophobia stimuli are part of the grotesque, how multiplication (especially among prolific animals) into a teeming swarm is part of the sexual, how symbols in scripts form textures, and how the coarse and grainy is part of the unpolished. Let me know if you share my interests! I was curious and did some figuring, and I found out that if you take a series of 12 circles with an increasing number of points at equal intervals on their circumferences, the number of single-line, self-crossing star polygons (like the pentagram) that you can make on the twelve circles is also 12: 4 can make 1 star, 2 can make 2 stars, 1 can make 4 stars, and the smallest number of points that can make a star is 5 (the pentagram), and 5 of the circles cannot make a star. !show more
