The Sundanese script has an ongoing story.
To read more about it you’ll need the right font installed, which took me a couple of tries.
- One recent font from Kairaga
- Another one (I can’t be arsed working out which one worked for me)
- Automatic transcription (missing the letter F, maybe others?)
Now read the Sundanese wikipedia article.
If I’ve understood the wikipedia page correctly (and I translated it from Sundanese, which I do not speak, so that’s not guaranteed) it’s like Thai and some other Brahmi-derived scripts in that there are primary consonants that a decorated with modifies to change the succeeding vowel. This is, if I am not mistaken, termed an abugida system. So the following should say “Cipta Gelar Remixed”; But without the modifiers it would say Cha-Pa-Ta-Ga-La Ra-Ma-Ka-Sa-Da
Or in the pasangan style, I think this is correct, but it doesn’t display in all environment, e.g. Facebook seems to mangle it.
