Yes. I used to use the term alphabet (meaning "writing system") on my web site but people complained that many alphabets are not alphabets (meaning "vowel and consonant symbology"). So I ended up using _neography_ ("new writing system") [but it's a pretty rare term, occuring on under 800 of Google's 4 billion pages].

Well I'll make sure to link to the book on Amazon, so I would hope it would be considered fair use as well as sell a few copies of her book over time. Thanks a lot!

Neat! Cheers, Jeffrey
