I’m intrigued by the mysterious alphabet on the poster! Wish I wasn’t so busy with exams - I have a strong desire to parse it out so I know which symbol matches with each letter, haha.

Nyfeaena I’m almost certain it’s a direct translation of the message. They match in length and across the words the same symbols match the same letters.

nobodies13 Oh yeah, I assumed as much! I just want to see the alphabet all laid out pretty one-for-one. I’m always intrigued by people creating alternate symbols for letters. :) Like a quick glance at it shows that the “a” symbol looks like a fancy, squiggly A, which is neat! I want to write Secret Messages using this wonky alphabet.

I would be very interested in a proper translation for this conlang.

As mentioned above, this is a 1-to-1 mapping of letters to symbols. Although, given the complexity of the symbols, it seems more like something you’d find in a syllabary (think Japanese or Korean), as writing all of those little accents for every single letter would get extremely tedious extremely quickly. There doesn’t seem to be any differentiation between capitals and lowercase, and all of the letters seem to be of the same letter height (despite what it looks like in my drawings). Looking at the accents, there were a few of them, seeming to serve no purpose beyond aesthetic. There are the small discontinued lines, as seen in letters like D, K, N, and Q. There are the long straight lines, such as in R and L, and the occasional loop and curlicue. Occasionally, letters will have more than one of these. As I said above, these accents seem to serve no purpose, as with the exception of M and N, F and G, L and R, and possibly A and X, the letters are distinct enough that the accents are unnecessary and would likely have long since fallen away. (Note: this is not a criticism. I think the letters look pretty darn cool. I’m just looking at it as a linguist.)

Hyasynthetic My hero! <333 Should have known you’d be interested in the letters, my linguistic friend. Also, that’s a really interesting note about the accents! I’m loving that some look vaguely like the letter they’re based on (A, K, Q) but trying to guess would not work for most of them since the S letter looks more like an English P and so on. How fancy.

(Edit: callout to the Bone Monster, give us the mystery B letter. :‘D)

*whispers* Nyfeaena there is a B. All letters are accounted for in the note


Also I’d just like to say….

DING!
