WIP: Nansha Uncial Script 2 by Hestia-Edwards WIP: Nansha Uncial Script 2 by Hestia-Edwards
Here is the revised Nansha script in Uncial style. :) After some thought and pondering, I decided have the Shas be mostly left-handed. With this in mind, real-life left-handers told me that if this is the case, then they would prefer a language that is written from right-to-left (like Hebrew and Arabic), as the typical left-to-right orientation only encourages ink smudges. So, I needed to make sure the letters were lefty-friendly. Some of them have been mirrored. You can see the original letters here:

Now, the question is...Will I change the dialogue found on two pages of my comic (seen below?) My answer is: No. When the comic was drawn, that's the stage my constructed language was at, same with my drawing skills in general. I'll leave it as a relic, if you will, at least for now. 

These letters represent the ones used in native Nansha words. There are letters for B, F, M, and P, but as some Minor Shas have a difficult time pronouncing bilabial letters, native words tend not to have these, but only foreign or loan words. A future diagram will include these letters.

In the late 19th century, little Rosamond Grey sneaked into the woods one night, and was found unconsciousness the next day.  For years afterwards she suffers from seizures from an unknown ailment. Dr. Glass is loosing hope for her cure, until a strange foreigner hints of a different cause…
