QuikScript Puzzle #1


RT has blogged quite a bit about constructed alphabets for English, that is, alphabets that have been designed specifically for writing English. His preference? Quikscript, designed by Kingsley Read.

So, to take the process of advertising the script one step further, RT offers the Quikscript sample to the left, two phrases taken from a famous work. Readers are encouraged to transliterate the sample into the Roman alphabet.

Here is a link to the Wikipedia Quikscript alphabet chart. Readers are also encouraged to leave their transliterations in this post’s comments section. Good luck!   RT

    “They marched past the alters, they marched past the cities”? Have you considered attempting to practice your penmanship? The “a” in “alters” looks like the alternate-“u” which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense unless we’re in regional-accent mode (I’m guilty as charged as well for this in my own QS writings).

      QO: you’re right on the money (and it’s from the opening stanza of my tablet 4 of Gilgamesh); thanks for taking the time to decode this rather hastily written example of QS. i certainly need more practice, and am hoping that further posts will give me the chance to improve my penmanship! RT
