    Hey everyone,

    Can somebody tell me what language is the writing in the picture im attaching ?
    It looks a lil bit like the Elvish language from the Lord of the Rings

    Thank you

    I think a better picture will be helpful. This one is not so clear. I think it's a kind of Latin, in some unique font. :)

    I would guess Armenian

    Looks like georgian to me but the picture is very blurry.

    I dont think its Georgian, though the first letter looks like. There are no apostrophes in Georgian.

    I just saw how Telugu looks and I think this could be it.

    Not Georgian for sure, it does look like older Georgian alphabet but there's no apostrophes or diaeresis in Georgian no matter the period of scripture.

    I note that each glyph in the image is roughly identical to some other glyph when rotated 180 degrees. The mark of an artificial alphabet, perhaps?

    What's the provenance of the original image? Are you sure it's right-side up? Could it be a mirror image?

    Depending on the orientation, some of the letters do look Georgian: I can see an, tan, kan, on, gan -- but not all in the same orientation. (And how often does Georgian have three such short words consecutively? ;-)

    Tengwar (Tolkien's Elvish alphabet) has the same problems.

    Please tell us that you didn't get this sample from something like the Voynich manuscript ...

    Most def not Georgian, it's my native language. Only Georgian alphabet this could possibly be is Khutsuri(ხუცური) but again not a single letter of it is spelled with any part of it detached from the main body of character.
    Here you go both older versions of Georgian alphabet. http://s39.radikal.ru/i086/0906/a0/cbeb5dbf51e1.jpg

    Could it be Burmese?
