Balitang Baybayin by Nordenx Balitang Baybayin by Nordenx
Just messing around with the *Baybayin fonts I created. Answering what would a newspaper look like if it was printed using Modern Baybayin Script.

*Baybayin is an ancient form of writing by indigenous tribes of the pre-Spanish archipelago now known as the Philippines.

it would take a non-experienced baybayin reader more than an hour to read all of this.. hahaha.. as I myself read this and it took time for me to finish it.

Astig. Ang lupit!
kasali na ba rito yung modern and borrowed letters (e.g c,f,j,x,v,z)?
Maybe, hindi pa aabot sa 10% ng Filipino youth ang nakaka-appreciate ng baybayin/alibata pero kung titingnan mo itong dyaryong ito, masasabi mong napaka-elegante talaga ng ating sinaunang titik. =)
I agree dun sa mga taong gustong isama ito sa curriculum ng Philippine education. I remember one time, pina-encode kami ng "Lupang Hinirang" using Tagalog Baybayin and it was fun.

The only modifications included on this piece is my modern RA character, spaces between words, and the Spanish virama (cross kudlit). The Tagalog phonetic spelling/approximations for ce, fa, ja, ex, and zed are used, namely: se/si, pa, d'ya, ek's/ik's, and sa respectively.
