My friend and I are working on a new way of writing using the idea of fractions: the part above the fraction line is the consonant and the part below the line is the vowel. This method of writing has several diacritical symbols as well.
From top to bottom:
- Diacritical symbol signifying Specific Consonant (The little V; marks a Consonant to be stronger in a list of Consonant with the vowels (below) applied to them.)
- Diacritical symbol signifying stretching out the sound of the specific letter (the horizontal line).
- Diacritical symbol signifying using the vocal cords on the specific group of letters (the "sine wave").
- The consonant itself (the rotated "D", in this case, Uh).
- The "fraction line".
- Vowel (in this case, ee).
Here there are three consonants, from right to left: "Ko" (stressed, little V); "V" (sine wave above-head), "M" (horizontal line). As you can understand, the common vowel is "O" as in Overwatch, and is located below the fraction line.
Getting rid of the little V above the A-like letter will make this unreadable.
- Can TrueType itself even support this sort of writing?
- Can it deal with multiple symbols above a common line (i.e. grouped to a common vowel)?
- Is there software that can support this font creation?
