Not mine really; my sexy and brilliant friend Jeff made it up. I'm far too
embarrassed of anything _I'VE_ done to show it anywhere. :)
Things like e` can be written é, but I'm far too lazy and better at reading
it this way, which is more or less standard anyway. the ' is written è, and
the " is written with three dots over the letter. So if you were going to
write the transliteration, you'd probably do it that way, though I find it
much more pleasing to write it in Tiri'n itself (where the same marks apply,
except in some letters the ` is a straight line coming up from the top of
the letter, as you'll see.) I probably should have mentioned this in the
last post, doh. :)
If you're interested in tiri'n itself, I'll have to draw up a chart for you,
I don't have one off hand. It's really fun and logical. :)
