So you want to learn Nayuan? Congratulations! The first thing you'll need to be acquainted with is the script. It's a calligraphic phonetic alphabet written left-to-right. It has no particular order, but the layout is as follows:
CharacterNamePronunciation
aa/a/
bba/b/
dda/d/
ee/ɛ/
ffa/f/
gga/g/
hha/h/
ii/i/
kka/k/
lla/l/
mma/m/
nna/n/
ŋŋa/ŋ/
oo/ɔ/
øø/ə/
ppa/p/
rra/ɾ/
ssa/s/
šša/ɕ/
tta/t/
uu/u/
vva/v/
wwa/w/
xxa/x/
yya/j/
zza/z/

Punctuation consists of ,, equivalent to the comma, and ., which serves most other purposes (ending a sentence, enclosing quotes or sound effects, adding emphasis, etc).
One caveat is &, which makes the sound koš meaning "and". It is similar to the & symbol or the Greek ϗ, but it's used not only as a standalone word but whenever the sound is encountered.

That is the best conscript I've seen in a long time, absolutely love this in the same way as Tibetan. Stellar work!
