A simple conscript (constructed script / writing system / alphabet) inspired by conlangs (constructed languages) and yet undeciphered ancient and modern writings.
Currently, this conscript is just a basic substitution set and can be used as an alternative writing system for the Basic Latin set (the new glyphs correspond to the Latin alphabet), i.e. for writing English, but the glyphs for Cyrillic are still unfinished.
The capital letters (uppercase letter glyphs) are identical to their lowercase equivalents, but are written inside a square to distinguish them from the lowercases.
The font has some problems with punctuation kerning, but these are because of the need for the capital letters to be aligned to the lowercases. Standard symbols such as numbers and punctuation are identical to their Latin originals.
The final goal is to write my own conlang, which will utilize a future version of this script.
The script is also intended as a substitution alphabet for writing Latin, Cyrillic and other languages (using a yet undeveloped specific interlingua convention).
For a quick reference chart on how to read the letter-to-letter correspondence, see http://sahwar.deviantart.com/art/Sahwarian-writing-systems-1-128986775.
As already stated, the SahWarian Alphabet Type1 is currently just an alternative alphabet for English invented by sahwar. It is intended to be used as a code for writing diaries, journals, artcode or hidden messages.
Type of writing system: alphabet
Direction of writing: left to write in horizontal lines
Used to write: only English / Basic Latin (for now).
