The square form is the zero form from which other styles of the letters can be derived. This form shows the bare pattern of the letters.

The Silineal alphabet inherits some feachures from the earlier Abetal alphabet. But unlike Abetal, 5 letters in Silineal (    ) does not fit the seven-segment pattern.

The name "Silineál" (Syllineal) is from Greek prefix "syn" + Latin "linea" + "al" from "alphabet".

The most letters of Silineal are derived from random similarity of glyphs in different writing systems, like the words of the Seytil language are derived from random similarity of words in the languages of the entire world. Silineal follows the philosophy of the Seytil language. So, Silineal is the inherent alphabet of the Seytil language, and the earlier Abetal alphabet rests to be an abstract piece of art, which may fit to write a text in any language.

stressed /'a/
Glagolitic a

/e/, /ɛ/
Korean Braille ⠗ Ae /ɛ/

The same letters of possible another pattern, box pattern. Some letters fit good, some letters fit less, if any ideal form of the letters exists at all. The pattern also is of 7 bits: 4 bits 4 sides of the box, 2 bits for 2 strokes within, and 1 bit says whether the strokes within is diagonal or orthogonal.
