Dscript Alphabet

Dscript went through many evolutionary stages over the years.

In its original form Dscript was a a binary representation system in which 6 points were representative of binary digits (1,2,4,8,16 and 32), each letter of the alphabet was then assigned a value based on its position in the alphabet (a=1, b=2, c=3, etc..) and represented as a binary number using this system.

Later The binary system evolved over several generations to become more and more cursive until finally evolving into at its present form.

There were not really distinct generations of Dscript, it was a gradual constant mutation of the letter, but here is a general idea of the stages it went through using the word "the" as an example.

Original Binary    2nd Generation    3rd Generation    4th Generation    5th Generation    6th Generation


Dscript originally evolved as a horizontal script, about the time of the Fifth Generation I began using it vertically as well, this requires slight modification because some of the pen strokes could not be rotated 90 degrees due to mechanical restrictions of the human hand. This manual explains the Vertical form but the horizontal form can also be learned by making slight adjustments, here is an example of horizontal script.

Are you reading this ?


As you can see the horizontal version follows similar principles to the vertical form.

There is of course still room for future evolution, Dscript is always open to creative modification, just remember the one and only cardinal rule... Avoid ambiguity!

I call the version in this manual the "final version" because I have found there is not much room left for modification anymore without risking ambiguity or using pen strokes that would be far to difficult to be used in a written language.

It is my belief that any future evolution of Dscript should focus on combining longer strings of letters into shorter shapes. To this end I suggest it would be best to focus on common prefixes and affixes.

Dscript has already evolved to be complicated enough that one person cannot hope to design it to maximum efficiency, so I leave the next stage of its evolution up to you. Feel free to use the "final version" as starting point, customize Dscript as much as you want. If you feel you have developed a newer better version, I would love to see it, please dont hesitate to contact me and discuss potential future versions of Dscript.
