Uyata is an abugida used to represent the Qatama language. Uyata and the Qatama conlang were invented by Qang for use in his conworld, Qatama. It was created as an alternative to the alphabet Moj.

Notable features

  • 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 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.
