The Vine alphabet was invented by Marshall Wildey in 2002 during a boring day at work. He was inspired by Mongolian in its vertical, continuous writing. Most of the consonants somewhat resemble the ones in the Latin alphabet. The name of the alphabet comes from its style which resembles a hanging vine.
- Lines of text are written in vertical columns that move from left to right.
- It can be used to write any language using the Latin alphabet. Diacritic accents are simply written above the vowel diacritics.
- Sentences are written with no spaces in between words.
- It can be written very decoratively.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
