I’ve Invented an Abugida, I’ě Iĕ̌ĕ̀y̏ ay̆ Aúı̋ȁ

The other day there was an idea mentioned on Omniglot: what if an abugida would use letters for the vowels and diacritics for consonants. So I made one. Let’s call it Vowel Abugida.

Vowels: a e i o u. Vowel y is written as i.
  Consonants shown on the vowels are pronounced before the vowel. Consonants after a vowel are written on a carrier y. Consonant clusters are written either one by one on carriers y or stacked on the same vowel. Stacked diacritics above the letter are read bottom to top (from the letter away). Diacritics below the letter are read after the ones above it. Consonants w, q (qu) and x are written with diacritics for vv, kv and ks, respectively. Periods (.) may be put between letters i to avoid diacritics to overlap or become too close to be readable.

p – ȧs – ã
t – àm – ā
k – än – ă
b – áh – ả
d – ȁc – å
g – a̋j – ą
v – ǎl – ȃ
f – âr – ạ

The sample was written in the Calibri Light font, in Babelpad, using a line spacing value of 2 to let even four diacritics to be displayed.
  
  Without proper support for rendering stacked diacritics, it’s not readable. You can try if your browser supports that:
