Hehe, yes. Barry's brainchild is a leaf script with holes in
it for indicating vowels. I've never seen a longer example
of it, though. Is there one, Barry? BTW, this thread was
actually about "McGuffey Readers and animals"!!!!! Dammit!

Look at all those nifty scripts like Malayalam/Tamil,
Java/Balinese, Thai/Khmer, or even Chinese. Those ones are
very complex actually, concerning either the system or the
letters or both, but are still used. The Javanese and
Balinese scripts have been replaced by the Latin script
according to Omniglot, though.
