Kalkrath: Oh, too bad. I guess you didn't read my post well enough. The Kilrathi do _not_ have an alphabet. They have a set of signs, where each is a single syntactic element (a word). And _that's_ why it would be so bloody hard to create their writing system. I mean, you could just decide that, say, | || |, means Skabak or whatever else comes to mind, but if you want to make the language learnable, you'd have to give it proper structure. That means that you'd have to explain why | || | means Skabak.
