(The previous thread became a spammy mess. I figured the finalized version of la zbalermorna deserves its own thread.)

zbalermorna is a beautiful abugida writing system for Lojban, designed by la kmir.

So, here's larlermorna. I finally got the time to do it out right with a tablet and all that fancy shit. ko catlu and all that.

I would like to point out that this is very very fancy, so I tried to do a 'straight' version first. I'll post some follow-up with some different styles of writing to show off the flexibility.

Thanks very much! Your comment is encouraging :)

Nope, full vowels have specific roles and using them wrong is renders your sentence invalid.

Sooooo, how stable is this version?
Even though its just a tweak of the older stuff, should this not change for a good while?

Is this the most up-to-date version?

This place seems to be mostly abandoned, and yet I post, for sake of tradition. This is my stylization of la kmir's zbalermorna. The form of letters stays approximately the same; vowel diacritics go below preceding consonants, not above, and rafsi- and rafsi-like CVC and CCV sequences are written as one vertical block.

The typeface is influenced primarily by 'Phags-pa script and especially geometrized forms of Kufic calligrafic form of Arabic, but also by Tibetan script and Devanagari. Fictional writing system from video game FEZ and pictogram aesthetics from The Journey also left their mark.

P.S. I tried to contact la kmir on this, but wasn't able to find the way to do so - maybe anyone knows his contacts?

Let's start grabbing up orthographies and creating Lojban modes for them!

I personally don't like the existing Tengwar modes, but I'll post my version (FAR superior!) later. For now, I have a Lojban mode set up for D'ni (featured in the popular Myst and Riven games) and Klingon. I don't know quite so much about Klingon, so somebody may want to pop in and correct me, but I'll post my thoughts behind each choice.

"Fake" scripts aside, do we have Lojban modes for scripts like Cyrillic, Hebrew, whatever Farsi is written in, etc.? We should document them! People do often gripe about Roman letters being too western-biased, but new scripts too difficult, so we should make an effort to create Lojban modes for all of the different scripts out there, and maybe even use them, hm?

I'm also working on some ideas for the much-sought-after Hiragana/Katakana Lojban mode, because I have an inkling of how to pull it off.

To my knowledge, there are two:


Personally, I like Zbalermora more, but that is just personal preference, I guess.

>> No.670  

Personal preference or not, I agree. I've never been a fan of cursive. Though the way Zbalermorna flips characters for voiced pairs reminds me of the headache I had while learning Shavian and couldn't remember which way was up. Shavian had other problems, though...

I wonder what the prospects are of lojban ever officially adopting a new mode.

>> No.911  

From the pdf: "Zbalermorna is primarily designed to be written by hand. It is best suited to writing with the right hand, but can be adapted."

Isn't that always the way. I'm not sure that a handed-neutral script is possible, but, still. Someday when I have time I will design a script that is best suited to the left hand; then things will be evened out a little...

Following lindar, I've put together a proposal for a script that is based on the same principles of the Elian script.
I've not made any attempt to callygraphy, but the system has a lot of flexibility that should allow people to express their aestethic ability.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Appreciating the time and effort you put into your blog and detailed information you provide. It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out of date rehashed information. Wonderful read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

A possible arabic orthography. The precise assignments for tanwiin could be different.

Although not necessarily arabic, latin characters are not good.
Script is better in terms of flow and readability.

Hello Lojbanis! My friend has been telling me about Lojban for a couple months, and I immediately loved it, though I must say, I'm only through part of chapter 2 so I'm a complete noob. I think it's amazing though, and I'm just wondering, has any work been done on some kind of Lojban based verbal text editor or better yet IDE? That seems like a really logical place to go.
