thai script for toki pona

Thai is an abugida meaning there is an inherent vowel after each consonant, 'a' at the end & 'o' otherwise. To change the vowel you write the appropriate vowel mark. ก would be 'ka' at the end of a word & 'ko' elsewhere. มม would be pronounced as 'moma'. To get mama you would write ละล. Spaces are not used between words so ตกี ปน (toki pona) would be written "ตกีปน". To avoid ambiguity this should probably be an 'a' everywhere. 'toki pona would be โตกีโปน.

ญ ก ล ม น
ป ศ ต ว

vowels are attached to the consonant before them or 'อ' if the word begins with a vowel.
'ะ/a' goes after the consonant ' ี/i' goes above, 'u' goes below, e goes before & after the letter & o goes before the consonant.
ะ a/ เ ะe / ี i * 'e' is written with เ before the consonant & ะ after it.
โ o / ู u
at the beginning of a word the vowels are:
อะ เอะ อี โอ อู using อ as a silent placeholder.

Attached to a letter:
กะ เกะ กี โก กู
ka ke ki ko ku

there doesn't appear to be a way to negate a vowel so 'ปน' /'ปน' would be 'pana', but there doesn't seem to be a way to write a final 'n' without a vowel, ํ could be used above a final 'n' instead so 'pan' would be ปะนํ. 'ante' would be อะนํเตะ.

the "low-tone" character ่ could be repurposed as a marker above the first & last letter of proper names. ศีเตะเละนํต่วี่ลีโปนตวมี = sitelen Tawi li pona tawa mi.

'ni li toki pona' would be นีลีโตกีโปน/นี ลี โตกี โปน.
using the o/a rule it would be: นีลีตกีปน/นี ลี ตกี ปน.
alternatively, 'ณ' could also be used for 'n' vs 'น' for 'na'
'pan' would be ปณ / 'sinpin'=ศีณปีณ

Not altogether a promising script for tp.

It's just another script to play around with. I'm partial to sitelen Nijon myself, but, obviously I expect the latin alphabet to remain official.
