Dear readers of Omniglot and Wiktionary[edit]

I had been thinking of devising a way to write the Arabic language using the Tibetan script. For any feedback, is it okay to make a talk page on this page? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 16:13, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
P.s. I've been using the page on "Arabindi" as one source for ideas. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 16:15, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Also note these instructions. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 19:15, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
Now I'm getting this impression that it could also be applied to Aramaic, Classical Syriac, and Mandaic languages. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 02:50, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
