Hello everyone, I’m doing this post to answer some of the questions that have been asked in the comments over the past few posts. I would have replied in the comments, but the answers might take up more space than the comment box is willing to give me.
Okay so Solomonsydelle said “wouldn’t it be better to create a script (alphabetic/phonetic) before creating actual words?”
Well the thing is, I think because there is no real correlation between my facebook account and my blog, it kinda looks like I’m putting the cart before the horse, but I’m really not.
The short answer is: Yes, there is a script. I’m just trying to figure out if I want to put each individual letter here or if I want to put a whole picture here. Oh what the heck, here it is.
I’m not going to paste the whole alphabet here because all of you are going to curse me, but the entire thing is in the photo gallery of the Facebook Group (The Igbo Academy). What I am going to do is show you the tutorial videos (also in the FB Group) that will answer all your questions, and undoubtedly generate new ones.
The videos are very short, shorter than your average music video, and they will teach you three things.
- How to actually write the letters in the fastest most economical way.
- What the entire alphabet looks like and how to write it
- How to form words (and later sentences) from the alphabet and the rules of writing vowels.
In that order.
I’m taking my hair loose, so conditioner is getting in my eye. Will put pictures up later. 😀
