Ular Writing system

The 17 Ular Symbols

The Ular writing system was the second writing system in Teles to get invented around 4400BK (about 300 years after the Ydtobogȧndeki).

It's an abjad font where only the 16 consonants of early Ular could get displayed. About 4300 BK an additional mute symbol was invented which is used when a morpheme (a syllable) doesn't use both consonant slots in the (C)V(C) syllable system. Due to that, every syllable is two symbols long.

In the "Era of alienation" 4200-3000BK, the writing system was an attribute which held the three big Ular dialects (which were harder and harder to understand to each other) together, as the letters could mean more than one phone. For example, V (the letter which could mean [tʰ] in the middle (and most original) dialect, [d] in the North and [ts] or even [s] in the south.

NatureEdit

Ular was an abjad, which meant that only the consonants were betokened. Therefore, old Ular textes were and are hard to read:  The writing system left the reader to supply the appropriate vowel and tone. Vor example, V could either mean "thà" - flower, or "thò" - shaman, or "thă" - fear, or severals more.
