yapusazh is the alphabetic representation of the Sinnish language
(lidosazh in its own tongue). yapusazh and Sinnish were invented by
Scott ‘Blade’ Hamilton for use in a series of stories and role-playing
games set in an urban fantasy background.
- yapusazh is an alphabet written from left to right like English.
- There are two forms of yapusazh, a calligraphic script called
yapuzhat (‘smoke letters’) and round form called yapuwer (‘forest letters’).
- Each letter has a Sinnish name. The names for consonants start
with the sound they symbolize. The names of the vowels have the vowel
as the first (or only) vowel that appears in them.
- In yapusazh, all vowels have descenders and all consonants have
ascenders. The chul letter both ascends and descends.
- There are a few optional ligatures for when the tuhr vowel
follows certain letters.
- In yapuwer all vowels have descenders. Consonants do not, but
are written along the top of the line.
