Evíon was invented by Daniel M. Pulley in 2005. He was inspired
by the Arabic script, the Tengwar of Fëanor, and a little bit by
Divine epiphany. It can be used to write Evíon, a language
Daniel is invented, and with some modification, English, Altaen,
French, Spanish, German and other languages.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Direction of writing: written horizontally from left to right,
right to left, or alternating in either direction if one so wishes.
- There are no letters for g, p, q, z, w, or f.
g and p are replaced by j, q by cv, z by x, w by v and f by ph.
- The ordering of letters is vowel and then consonant, if a vowel
is on top of a consonant, then the vowel is read first. Vowels can
stand alone after consonants, but in the middle of a word, the vowel
carrier is used, or in cases of complex vowels, then the top vowel is
read before the lower vowel.
- x, d, l have two forms, initial and intermediate, the initial
form is used at the beginnings of words, the intermediate form elsewhere.
Sample text in the Evíon alphabet
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
