Jump to navigation Jump to search

This category contains writing systems where symbols represent consonants, but the symbols (or graphemes) are varied depending on the following vowel. Such systems are distinguished from Category:Syllabary writing systems, in which each symbol represents a consonant and a vowel, or only a vowel, in some cases followed by a consonant or tone, and Category:Abjad writing systems (systems where symbols represent consonants, and vowel marking is absent or optional).

This categorization follows the classification introduced in 1990 by Peter T. Daniels.
