Bug Description

The Shavian alphabet (also known as Shaw alphabet) is an alphabet conceived as a way to provide simple, phonetic orthography for the English language to replace the difficulties of the conventional spelling. It is mapped into the Unicode codepoints U+10450–U+1047F and consists of 48 glyphs, or which it may be possible to share four through rotation (Egg, Ash, Ado, On).

There is an Ubuntu Shavian translation, thus the font should support the script in the long-term.

Hello Alan, thank you for bring up Shavian; I have mileposted this for the community expansion phase. There is still discussion about how this will work, but it likely that each locale/script team will need to find two type designers, one of whom would be mentored by DaltonMaag to ensure harmony and consistency across the font family.
