Sarati Script

Postby acthomson » Thu Feb 24, 2011 9:00 pm

Hi Everyone!

Like most others, I too am wanting a tat but in Sarati Script. If anyone knows how to write the word 'undefined' in vertical Sarati script (reading from left to right) could you please let me know. Thanx sooo much! I'm really enjoying being a member!

Do you mean "Top-to-bottom beginning at left" ? Because "vertical" and "left to right" seem contraries to me ! And as it's only 1 word, if it's vertical, beginning at left or right will have no incidence.

Well, I didn't know if I would be able to do it if I wait for your answer, so I did it the way I thought was what you wanted (I had a bit of time now).

I must admit that this is my first attempt with Sarati, so I'm not a reference as solid as I am with Tengwar... but I used good and complete references, so I tend to be quite confident with it. I used the Phonetic Form (3rd variety) of Sarati, vertically (from top to bottom), with and without bar.

So, using [ʌndɪfaɪnd] as the phonetic representation of "Undefined" (I took it directly from the dictionary), here is what I obtain. Now if you want to tell me what you think about it (or if someone reads this and as an opinion on Sarati transcription), I'll be very happy and interested to discuss the subject !

ah... that's sad, because I hurried in order to show it to you before you get it done and to post it saturday night... as you didn't come to see it before going there, I guess it wasn't important
