Alternative writing of digraphs

Symbols ⲆⲒ, ⲚⲒ and ⲦⲒ
Ⲇ̓ ⲇ̓
Ⲇ̓ ⲇ̓
Ⲛ̓ ⲛ̓
Ⲛ̓ ⲛ̓
Ⲧ̓ ⲧ̓
Ⲧ̓ ⲧ̓

The digraphs ⲆⲒ, ⲚⲒ and ⲦⲒ are sometimes replaced by a come next to them symbolizing the softening.

This spontaneous change is sometimes used because of the problemtic with reading of the words which have a softened consonant next to a /i/ sound, it can be for example seen in the official name of the language, "Ⲃⲓⲉⲗⲅⲟⲣϣⲧⲓⲓⲛⲁ", where it would be written as "Ⲃⲓⲉⲗⲅⲟⲣϣⲧ̓ⲓⲛⲁ". This change is favored by some linguists, as it would simplify the writing system of the language without actually creating a new script altogether.

Symbol for ⲒⲈ
Ⲉ̓ ⲉ̓
Ⲉ̓ ⲉ̓

The digraph ⲒⲈ is proposed to be replaced by a symbol Ⲉ̓. This change would furthermore simplify the orthography, for example replacing the original name of the language "Ⲃⲓⲉⲗⲅⲟⲣϣⲧⲓⲓⲛⲁ" with a title "Ⲃⲉ̓ⲗⲅⲟⲣϣⲧⲓⲓⲛⲁ".

Proposals for lignature

Alternate proposal includes creating a single diacritic symbol linking the digraphs together, in which the ⲆⲒ, ⲚⲒ, ⲦⲒ, ⲒⲈ, ⲦⲤ and ⲦϢ are fitted with a connector.
