This article is one of many about Qatama
- Uyata is written in glyph blocks by vertically stacking the syllable glyphs to form words. The script is written vertically, in columns running from left to right.
- The word uyata not only refers to the script but also means "box, container" in Qatama - referring to the boxy appearance of the glyphs.
- Uyata was inspired by Phags-pa, and the Chinese Seal Script.
- Uyata contains 30 syllable glyphs, 3 vowel glyphs, a syllable reverse glyph and a number marker to form numbers.
- The vowels are placed after the syllable they modify.
- The syllable reverse glyph is placed immediately before the syllable it modifies.
- The script can also be written horizontally in glyph blocks, but this is only done to save space.
- There is no punctuation used in Qatama, pauses, stops and questions are understood through the use of context and particles.
