The Mintzilitzish alphabet is a Latin alphabet (even though it does not look like one and includes some non-Latin letters) consisting of 26 letters, same number as the English one. Mintzilitzish is usually written in two alphabet forms: English or Greek. However, a unique alphabet has evolved and is regularly used for Mintzilitzish too. This alphabet is known as Mintzilitzish alphabet or Mintzilalpphl (pronounced Mee-ntzee-lahl-pee-fl). The exact shape of printed letters varies depending on the typeface. The shape of handwritten letters can differ significantly from the standard printed form (and between individuals), especially when written in cursive style.
|Majuscule forms (also called uppercase or capital letters)|
|Minuscule forms (also called lowercase or small letters)|
Written Mintzilitzish uses a number of digraphs, such as tz, nc, ts, etc., but they are not considered separate letters of the alphabet, evn though they are used regularly (example tzis-you in plural).
Mintzilitzish in Greek, English and Mintzilitzish alphabetsEdit
As mentioned before, Mintzilitzish speakers tend to use different alphabet in order to write the language, according to where they live, the context etc. The Greek alphabet is mostly used when the language is written by people that either live in Greece or have Greek as their first language. In the same way, the English alphabet is used. Also, the English alphabet is used for writing Mintzilitzish when the language appears on the Internet. Finally, the Mintzilapphl is used when in an official text, or when written by the Mouzeliot government. Examples follow.
