A visual aid for memorizing Baybayin script (fonts) through association. By manipulating the ancient script (re-orientation and adding imaginary lines), you can compare them to equivalent Roman alphabets. Please note that the uncanny similarities between Baybayin characters and the Roman alphabet is purely coincidental. The Philippine scripts were derived from Brahmi scripts (Sanskrit, Nagari) used on the Eastern coast of India, such as Vengi, Chalukya, or Assam, originally transmitted in the 8th century AD. It has also been suggested that the writing system was heavily influenced by Kavi script or Old Javanese, perhaps also indirectly by the Buginese scripts.
I hope that this guide would help others improve their recognition of Baybayin characters and help them to ba able to read, write, and use Baybayin Scripts in their art.
