Abugida: A writing system based on consonants, with obligatory but secondary representation of vowels. Any given symbol represents a full syllable, which may be a single vowel or a complex combination of multiple consonants with a vowel. Where the symbol represents a combination of sounds, each sound will usually be represented by a particular element in the symbol, which is consistent across all syllables containing that sound.
