la krulermorna

krulermorna alphabet#

la krulermorna is an alternative orthography that more strictly implements audio-visual isomorphism of Lojban spelling.

  1. Most letters are from the original Latin-based orthography.
  2. Glides i and u in front of vowels are considered consonants and thus are expressed via distinct letters:
    • i => ɩ
    • u => w
  3. Diphthongs that act like other "pure" vowels are expressed via distinct letters:
    • au => ǎ
    • ai => ą
    • ei => ę
    • oi => ǫ
  4. in other positions i and u are retained as they are in the original Latin orthography.


la krulermorna is used by an algorithm in la sutysisku app to search for rhymes to Lojban words.

It can also help understand Lojban morphology.

Other than that it's mostly an art project.

The overal number of letters in Lojban alphabet is raised from 26 in the official spelling up to 32 in la krulermorna, which may not be desirable for people using small on-screen keyboards like those on portable devices.

.i coi do
.i mi ca jai gau djuno fai do
lo du'u wi mi ca pilno
la krulermorna
lo ka ciska dei
.i ɩa ky. jai cinri

la vlipa krulermorna is a modification of la krulermorna where the letter ǎ is replaced with Unicode Character 'LATIN SMALL LETTER AU'. The latter isn't supported in most used fonts and therefore this variant of la krulermorna orthography is less used.
