Nordiche - Conlang

It is spoken by roughly thirty million inhabitants of AnortHea, and is used as a common trade tongue by a further three million people along the nearby continental coast. As of 2007 nearly two million Earthlings have learned the language to fluency. Words in Nordiche and other Urdhan languages are transliterated phonetically thus: Capital H always indicates a firm stop to the preceding consonant and a clear H sound as in happy; thus AnortHea = ah-nort-HEY-ah, NacHail = nach hah-EEL, DanHa = dahn-HA, etc.

An apostrophe indicates either a similar stop but with the preceding consonant softened in favor of a strong H, or a separation between vowels that should be clearly enunciated. Lowercase h is combined with other letters to indicate Nordiche consonants: bh as in Spanish burro; a soft B almost a V. Toki pona sitelen sitelen: lesson 4.

I didn't burn down the house hehe) still a fresh experiment, but first tests seem promising :) (see you-tube video above) No water or ink required, just paper, sand and fire. Could probably be done to leather, cloth, even wood, but wood would require a longer hotter burn to singe. The writing is water proof, once made, there is no ink, so it wont run or smudge no matter how wet it gets. Cover paper with sand, wipe lines in it with a stick, fingers or anything, and set a small fire on top. I think it will work much better with small burning sticks laid just above the sand .Build up the edges a bit so they don't actually lie on the "drawing surface" but instead are just above it. The last image in the video shows the carbon marks left on the floor beneath the paper. Dscript - Turning Words into Symbols and Gylphs. Golic Vulcan alphabet and language.
