The funny thing about this script is that though each character is composed like in Hangul, the result is characters which look uncomposed like Chinese ideograms :)) . I like this idea :) . BTW, you look quite skilled in writing characters. Learning Japanese seems to pay :) . I'm not that good unfortunately...

Please do, I long to see a grammar of Vyääh on the web (I hope you can see it correctly, I can do umlauts easily with my computer :)) ).

He he, I prefer vertical scripts too (Mongolian is just beautiful), and the Itakian script can also be written vertically. Horizontally is just more frequent :)) . And a script written from right to left, with letters representing vowels or vocalic clusters and consonnants written as diacritics can hardly be called "going side-by-side" :)) . I'll provide the list with examples of the Itakian native script as soon as I have enough words to make a sentence. But if people are interested, I have a 30KB GIF image with the different signs of the script and an explanation on how it works (I also have the 66.5KB Word file from which I produced it if people prefer that, though I don't think so :)) ). I can easily send it privately to people who want to see it. Or you can wait for the reader of the Conlang class of David Peterson, I made the image for it :)) . BTW David, is it going on okay with the reader? :)) Oh, and I have also all the different characters as individual images. Anybody knows a freeware font-making program? (one which doesn't have difficulties to make zero-width characters :)) ) Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
