Narayani (language)

From Guild of Archivists

Narayani, or Narani, is the language of the people of Narayan. Very little is known about the language except for various excerpts of the written form. Words are represented by symbols composed of arc-shaped stroke patterns[1]. These words can be combined into poems, all known examples of which are made up of four symbols arranged in a circle.

Narayani symbols can be typed using the Narayani Light font.

Narayani is the IC language of Narayan; Narani is language invented by Jack Wall for Myst III: Exile's soundtrack[2].
