Qirichanu can be written using three scripts; the Latin alphabet (arufabeçu ratinu), Hiragana (firagana) and Katakana (catacana). Kanji (canji) is also sometimes used in written Qirichanu.

2 /k/ before "a" and "o" and "u", [ts~s] before "e" and "i"
2 [ɸ] before "u", [ç] before "i", /h/ elsewhere

There are two digraphs: "ch" /tɕ/ and "nh" /n̠ʲ/.

"C" is pronounced /k/ when before the vowels "a", "o" and "u", and as /ts/ when before "e" and "i". When /k/ appears before the "e" or "i" it is represented by "q". Likewise, when /ts/ appears before "a", "o" or "u" it is represented by "ç".

Long vowels are written by doubling the vowel: "aa", "ii", "uu", "ee", "oo". /e:/ and /o:/ are also more commonly written as "ei" and "ou" respectively. At the end of a word as part of a diphthong or "ei", "i" is written "y": ie "ay", "ey". Geminate consonants are written by writing the consonants twice with the exceptions of "cq" and "tç" rather than *"qq" and *"çç". Digraphs are written by doubling the first part when geminated: "cch" and "nnh".

"M" and "n" are used to represent a nasal vowel when in the syllable coda. "M" appears at the end of a word or before "p" or "b", "n" appears before any other consonant apart from in compound words.
