Kpelle syllabary

On this page... (hide)

"The Kpelle syllabary? was invented during the 1930s by Chief Gbili of Sanoyea, Liberia. It was used to some extent by speakers of Kpelle in Liberia and Guinea during the 1930s and early 1940s but never achieved popular acceptance. Today Kpelle is usually written with a version of the Latin alphabet." ((Omniglot)

"It has been classed as a failed script." (Wikipedia, accessed 2 Nov. 2015)

This script had 88 characters (though many of the glyphs had different forms) and was written LTR. It is not encoded in Unicode.
