A note about the sigils: They are actual words. I wrote a program called scigil that takes phonemes of words to make these. Using the international phonemic alphabet, there is an outer ring on consonants, and an inner ring of vowels. The word starts at an open circle, and ends with the triangle tail. Other sounds are are points connected by lines, where repeated sounds get a concentric circle. I thought it was very interesting, since pronouncing words slightly different can still yield similar sigils (i.e. p,b are close together, as are g/k/j, etc...)

Example for the program's name: Skidjel
