The Ikonian alphabet is an alphabet for the Kingdom of Ikonia, however it is rarely used in special occasions of the Monarch or by document.

The Ikonian Alphabet consists of 26 letters each with it's own distinct pronunciation and is very relative to the English alphabet.

Letter formation

Ikonian words are derived from the english alphabet which is why some letters stay the same. When words are imported from the language, their forms are adapted to conform to the feel and standard of the Ikonian language. You pronounce the words as you see them.
