A visual aid for memorizing Baybayin script (fonts) through association. By manipulating the ancient script (re-orientation and adding imaginary lines), you can compare them to equivalent Roman alphabets. Please note that the uncanny similarities between Baybayin characters and the Roman alphabet is purely coincidental. The Philippine scripts were derived from Kavi script or Old Javanese, perhaps indirectly through the Buginese. It has also been suggested that the writing system was directly derived from Brahmi scripts used on the Eastern coast of India, such as Vengi, Chalukya, or Assam, originally transmitted in the 8th century AD.
