The Sarati script is an artificial script created by J. R. R. Tolkien for writing the artificial language, Quenya, which is spoken in the fictional territory of Middle-earth, where many of Tolkien’s novels are set.
Sarati is an abugida. Each letter, called a sarat, represents one phoneme. The script is based on consonants, with vowels written as diacritics. The script can be written in any direction, vertically, horizontally or boustrophedon, but is most often written vertically from top to bottom.
Sarati was created partly to provide a history for the better-known Tengwar script, which is claimed to be the descendant of Sarati.
