Sarati[edit]

I would contend that the sarati is not an abugida. It does not assume there is an 'a' attached to every consonant, nor is there a notation for explicitly noting a lack of vowel. The 'a' is just not written in as it is very common. It is the same for chat, for instance. We don't type in the article on most nouns if we are just informally typing, but this does not suggest that all nouns have an implied article.

An abugida is a script where vowels are secondary to consonants. Many Indic abugidas do not modify their consonants to indicate vowels, many do not have a kill stroke, and the assumed a is a feature specific to Indic abugidas, but not necessary to the definition of the term. kwami 23:30, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

I am currently editing this stub. I realize that I have not yet put in all of the references, they will soon be added. [User:ZiTee]—Preceding unsigned comment added by ZiTee (talkcontribs) 03:56, 9 April 2009

Good job on adding information. It's much better organized than it was before and goes into much more specificity on certain subjects. I would say to add more content to each subheading, but if the information is not there, than it's okay. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Myh6 (talkcontribs) 00:03, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Examples[edit]

Some photo of examples would be good. 65.94.45.160 (talk) 10:21, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
