    1. C does not exist as a stand-a-lone character in Igbo alphabet. It only comes as "Ch." Just FYI.

    1. I suspect this as a fan-made fictional writing system.

    2. Insibidi is actually a real writing system that was used. It’s not fan made, troll.

  3. I love this! I am trying to learn. Please, what is these diacritics, why are there 5 & 6? Other than uda-elu & uda-ala, what other one is being represented?

  4. I also wanted to know why you have "X" here? If I am not mistaken, that sound does not exist in Igbo.

    1. The x is a sound called voiced postalveolar fricative. look it up in the IPA to hear how it sounds. people from Abia and Imo State use that sound.

  5. Because the British modified the alphabet before they knew the language and how it worked
