A Conversation for Writing Systems
Apollyon - Grammar Fascist Started conversation Oct 19, 2007
A writing system not included in this entry is Ogham, a true alphabet used by the Celts apparently from the fourth to seventh centuries AD. An Ogham sentence took the form of a line with other lines branching from it; each letter was represented by a specific number and orientation of lines. For example, the letter G took the form of two parallel diagonal lines that crossed the main line, while CH (as in 'loch' rather than 'church') was represented by four lines one one side of the sentence line.
