Mongolian script is so pretty & I've been writing it all my Life & didn't know it. So strange I remember each brush stroke like I've done it thousand times.

It's weird. I can technically read this script, but the spelling is SO darned different from Cyrillic that the technical knowledge is kinda useless, except for single words and names, like this.

Mongol bichig, the vertical Mongolian script, was used in Mongolia until the adoption of cyrillic in the 1940s. In my view, one of the most beautiful scripts in the world, a tie with Persian nastaliq.  Calligraphy by Sukhbaatar Lkhagvadorj

Sample text in Phags-pa (Standard script style) Mongolian script commissioned by Kublai Khan in 1269.  The script was originally called "Mongolian new letters" - 蒙古新字 (měnggǔ xīnzì) in Chinese, a name still used in Tibetan. However the script is now known as dörbelǰin üsüg, square script, in Mongolian and as 八思巴字 (bāsībā zì), Phags-pa letters, in Chinese.
