The scripture of the Hraichi Elves.
Rules to Writing in Hraichi (in English wording, not script)
- Every word can only use vowels 1 time. So for example, Sadira would become Sadir.
- Every word must use the first part of the sound for the word for the first letter, then the secondary sounds for the letters following. Example: cat = se-ka-tsu
- Letters with ONE sound only need that one sound. Use that, don't try to break it up. "Unii" is U.
- Letters with 3 or more sounds are complex. Pe-su-na for p. Words that have two or more of this letter after the first, like application, have the second and third sound used in them.
- Apostrophes break up more than 3 similar letters. So with "kill", which is Kiiilailai, would become "Ki'iilailai". See?
- Remember these are the rules for direct script translation, NOT shorthand.
