Alibata Liwanag I by likhain Alibata Liwanag I by likhain
Calligraphy exercise. I haven't written alibata for a long time; this was the first alibata word I wrote in years.

Though this is more an experiment in writing than a finished calligraphy work, I wanted to post this to spark interest in writing alibata. Alibata is an old Philippine script derived from Arabic. (More info: [link] - excellent site)

The word is liwanag, which means light.

My Modified Baybayins

Hi, I'm Frederick Victor Paredes Añana, a Fine Arts graduate of Far Eastern University , Philippines . I designed my own modified Baybayin called Maharlikang Tagalog. It has three versions.

Visit these links below (from Omniglot.com) to check them out:
[link]

For Archaic Version 1, see [link]

For Archaic Version 2, see
[link]

For The Simplified Version, see
[link]

I also designed, Alfa-kinetix, a modified Baybayin with moving diacritics (or vowel markers).
See [link]

I used Coreldraw and Macromedia Flash to design my Baybayins. Then I exported them as gif image files.

So what do you think? What’s your comment / reaction about my modified Baybayins.

wow! elegant! uh, how is it pronounced, specifically?

coz i remember each alibata is a syllable much like nihonggo...i havent really understood how last syllables are read in modern words written as alibata

The symbols are la(li) - wa - na - ga -- I think I made a mistake, actually, since there shouldn't be a "ga" symbol at the very end. Oops. @_@ Its syllabication isn't so much Nihongo-ish as (according to the site) Mycenae-ish.

If I understood correctly, most last consonants aren't rendered with the notable exception of w.
