The conculture of Senjecas makes the language the original language of loquent beings. The Aerans, the first created, came into existence knowing the language. It was up to them to learn what to do with it. They chose to order the graphemes by POA: labials, dentals, alveolars and palatals, followed by the vowels. Thus, p, b, f, v, mh (/m_0/), m; t, d, th, dh, lh (/l_0/), l; ts, dz, s, z, r (r_0), n; k, g, x, q, yh (/y_0/), y. Then follow the vowels: i, e, a, /O/ (currently using the open o), o, u.
When writing using another language, the order of that particular language is used. In English: a, b, c, d, dh, e, f, g, yh (used to be `h'), i, y (yogh is used), k, l, lh, m, mh, n, o, p, q, rh, s, t, th, u, v, x, y, z, dz (used to be z-grave).
