Throughout this website, English and Hindi are written in black. My constructed languages appear in green, when written in the Roman and Devanagari scripts, and in red, when written in my own scripts. Natural languages written in my scripts appear in blue. My scripts are displayed on your system using CSS3. This is supported in the recent versions of most browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera, etc.). If you see boxes or other characters instead of my scripts, then your browser does not support CSS3. Please consider switching to a newer browser.
The Anglesap script was created by Nikhil Sinha in February 2004 to write the Nihilosk and Gokim languages. It is an alphabetic script. It is partly featural. Nihilosk and Gokim are also written in the Roman script.
There are twenty-six letters in the Anglesap script – sixteen consonants and ten vowels. The Nihilosk alphabet consists of twenty-one letters, while the Gokim alphabet consists of twenty-three letters.
The complete Anglesap alphabet has been given below.

Eighteen letters ( | a e i o u t d n k g ñ p b m v s l r) are common to both Nihilosk and Gokim. Three letters ( | f z h) are used exclusively in Nihilosk, while five letters ( | á é í ó ú) are used exclusively in Gokim. The letter | ñ only occurs before k g in both Nihilosk and Gokim. In the Roman script, ñk ñg are simplified to nk ng.
Vowels are indicated with diacritical marks, as shown above. At the beginning of a word, or after another vowel, the vowel marks are written on the null consonant letter, which looks like an "inverted S". In all other cases, vowel marks are written on the consonant which precedes the vowel. Gokim's extended vowels (á é í ó ú), are indicated by the "inverted 3" mark, which always precedes the letter with the vowel mark. These have been explained below.
