The consonants are vaguely like hieroglyphics. In a case of a Semetic-style language, I think you'd have to call it a variant of a logographic system, since each consonantal combo would represent a word-stem. The vowel pattern symbol would be a kind of abstract (ideo?)gram. -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
