Cavian Script is an abugida style semi-syllabic alphabet adapted for writing English. It borrows features from Southeast Asian and Northern Indian scripts.
The Cavian Script distinguishes 13 vowels. /a, ɑ, ɒ, ɔ/ are all treated as allophones, as are /e ɛɪ/ and /o ɔʊ əʊ/.
The Cavian script distinguishes 24 consonants. Both /w/ and /ʍ/ (/hw/) are treated as allophones. There is no character for /x, χ/, which are treated as allophones of /k/.
