Font Fonto

To the International Phonetic Alphabet, there is in the future an own new font: fonto.ttf. Thus, the language of the future can be formed in such a way that each sound corresponds to a letter and vice versa. There are uniform letters: one does not distinguish between upper and lower case. All letters are horizontal symmetrical and have two heights. Similar sounds are in principle also similarly written.

The more seldom vowels get, compared to the more frequent vowels, one more line, the voiced consonants, compared to the voiceless, a close form. In the n-dimensional representation, the two-dimensional letters are laid on the surfaces of an n-dimensional cube. Since no two unequal letters can be transformed by rotation into another, they are always good to recognise.

Plosives contain a v, nasals a point, trills consist of a circle with a horizontal bar at the top, taps/flaps have additionally a horizontal bar at the bottom, lateral fricatives contain an E, whose upper and lower end point to the middle crossbar, approximants can be identified by two parallel lines and lateral approximants consist at least of a circle, from which two bars diverge.

Load Fonto.ttf into your font directory to see all characters properly!
