How to Read & Write Avysh

Avysh alphabet

Here are two charts, one in Avysh, one in English. As you can see, not all the English letters are present in Avysh, while at the same time Avysh has some individual letters for combinations in English. The basic concept there works both ways. Avysh lacks a "Q" and an "X" - they make up for this lack by writing "kw" and "ks" respectively when the need arises.

In Avysh, the combination of the 'n' and the 'd' symbols makes "and" which we also use one symbol for in English, which is the ampersand. Though less common, the Avysh writer can also use the "th" letter to write the word "the" without confusing a reader. The top line, the vowels, all are shown with a dot - the dot denotes a long vowel. If the dot is not present, assume the vowel is short.

In addition to these letter differences, Avysh is written in boustrophedon, which means that the first line of text is written left to right, then the second line is written from right to left, and continuing alternating back and forth. For example, the beginning of the poem "The Raven" would look something like this in Avysh:

Once upon a midnight dreary,
yraew dna kaew derednop I sA
Over many a quaint and curious
erol nettogrof fo emuloV
As I nodded, nearly napping,
gnippat a emac ereht ylnedduS
As of someone gently rapping,
.rood rebmahc ym ta gnippaR

Now this might look impossible to an English reader, but when one is raised with such a style, it comes naturally and seems like the only sensible and logical way to write and read. The average reader of Avysh would be equally flummoxed by our style of writing.

That should drive away all the "casual browsers" who stumbled upon this page accidentally and don't know what they're looking at. They won't look any deeper. So, below is the main point of this page. Yeah, it looks like just another vanity page, with zero interesting content, but I promise you, my writing rawks. Okay, maybe it does, maybe it doesn't, but I don't really feel like sharing it with everyone, so I kinda buried it on a vanity page where I don't think anyone's really gonna look unless I direct them there.

You, however, have found this page. Good for you! I'm glad you're here (I think I am, anyway... you know, if I sent you here. On the other hand, if you're a spammer or some other kind of monster, git lost! Nobody wants you ANYwhere!). So welcome to the page where you can find ...

a link to my first book as well as
a link to my second book. Then there's
A link to my third book (so far).
Also, here is a collection of short stories I've written.
Here is a short story, unrelated, about dragons. And the great part of it is, it's a (mostly) true story. Enjoy!
I sincerely hope you enjoy what you read!

About

What can I say about "me" that hasn't already been said? I'm not really into making this page up, I just want a place to place a link. Blah, blah, blah, I'm a person, blah, blah, whatever.... you know you love me! Uh, I'm hopefully soon going to be a member of the publishing company Bumble & Grace, so maybe I should pretend to be respectable.
