Reminds me a little of Tibetan (and to less extent of French) where the writing form reflects only remotely the actual spoken form. But Boudewijn knows more about Tibetan than I do so if you want more info on that ask him :) (BTW, Tibetan is one of the most beautiful script I ever saw. It's even more beautiful than the script it's derived of: Devanagari). [snip] Extremely interesting writing system. Where did you get the idea of those "harmony" superscripts? From your own mind, or where you influenced by some natlang around? Christophe.
