Arttain National Flag with the Second form of Traditional writing

3 additional letters to English letters. This form is the one that used on the computer and other electronics. The second form is the older traditional form that is a little similar to Arabic. And the third form is the present form. It is special that it's written from top to bottom/ up and down/ Vertically. It is very similar to Mongolian. Although it wants to be artistic, it's not very complex in grammar and wrting forms. It doesn't have conjugations or tenses, like Chinese and Vietnamese. Its words are mostly from English, and very a few of words are from Spanish. It makes it easy to learn and speak if you know Enligsh.

PhonologyEdit

Arttain can be read by syllables. Each letter has its own sound and most of them have only one sound. People can read them without knowing the meanings once they know how each letter sounds. Arttain doesn't have tones, just like English. One syllable can contain 1 or 2 Consonants with a vowel. The stress of a word is always in the second last syllable if the end is a vowel, and in the last syllable if the end is a consonant. Also, the syllable in a word whose vowel has a  `  on top would be the stress. Since Arttain is not an old language, its words are mostly come from English and Spanish.
