The Lortho alphabet contains 21 letters, one of which is a vowel. The writing system behaves in a similar manner to an abugida; however, there are no conjunct consonants and vowels are given equal status as consonants. Ligatures are formed by consonant + vowel (other than the vowel [i]). Lortho's script was inspired by the Devanagari, Uchen, and Tengwar writing systems.
Vowels and Vowel Constructs
Vowels (except [i]) are attached to the preceding consonant forming ligatures.
The diphthongs are written as seen below.
Word-Initial Vowels and Diphthongs
For word-initial vowels, the letter [i] will be used as the place holder (unless the [i] is the vowel) and the additional vowel will be added as one would on a consonant-vowel ligature.
Since Lortho has its own script, a romanized version has been set up to make it easy to read and pronounce as shown in the tables below.
The counting system in Lortho is decimal (base 10).
