Zhuori is the language spoken by the upper class in a currently unnamed commission project by Elmer Johnson.
Zhuori uses a regular abugida that uses diacritics for monophthongs, diphthongs, and gemination of consonants.
The nuclear vowel, or initial vowel in a diphthong of a syllable is located in the upper left. The off-glide or secondary vowel is in the bottom right.
In this chart, B is shown in its geminate form to show the diacritic for geminates.
