New page[edit]

Created as part of a proposal to break out the Writing systems section of Klingon language.

Reasoning:

  1. The alphabets discussed here are distinct from both "Klingon languages", which are typically (and officially) written in the Latin alphabet.
  2. These alphabets can also be used to transcribe English, as the illustrations show.
  3. Thus the language(s) and alphabet(s) are not tied together in the way that (for instance) the Russian language and the Cyrillic alphabet are tied together.
  4. Readers can, and may wish to, learn about the language(s) without learning about the alphabet(s) — or vice versa. The page structure should permit this.

If this is acceptable, the remaining step will be to replace that section in Klingon language with a link to this page. A similar link will also be placed in Klingonaase.

Translations and tags will also be needed.  – SAJordan talkcontribs 04:35, 9 Nov 2006 (UTC).

Mongolian

ive long since stopped being a contributor to wikipedia, but someone should make reference to the fact the wikipedia logo contains a pIqaD character in the top right corner —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.68.44.223 (talk) 13:24, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure? While it looks almost like , it's not close enough to make me want to claim it as fact. ~naHQun —Preceding unsigned comment added by NaHQun (talkcontribs) 04:22, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

There's now Amharic in that spot. I don't know what the old one was; will have to look it up. But Klingon really does look like Mongolian (left). Don't know if that's coincidence or if the Mongol hordes were taken as inspiration for things Klingon. — kwami (talk) 23:59, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Prior to the 2010 logo revision, pIqaD "r" was in that spot. VanIsaacWS Vexcontribs 00:00, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
