Which alphabet? Or a new one?

a new alphabet,
perhaps with the shape. and then any nuance of light, hue, and texture would change the inflection of the words. a complicated alphabet, learnt in stages.

in hindi, i.e. the devnagari script, the vowels are organized in a different section of the alphabet. in the actual words, vowels can appear as independent letters, but many times ornament the affected consonant.

but maybe with a new alphabet one might forget vowels and consonants all together. after all it depends what kind of creature is speaking the new language; what type of sounds they make. it is nice to maintain some similarities to known languages in the underlying structure i suppose. so between the shape, color, light, and texture, they would divvy vowel, consonant, and other similar duties.
