The Buhid script is used by the Buhid people in the mountains of Mindoro Island, The Philippines.

Consonants have an inherent -a vowel. The other two vowels (-i and -u) are indicated by a diacritic above (for -i) or below (for -u) the consonant. Depending on the consonant, ligatures are formed, changing the shape of the consonant-vowel combination. Vowels at the beginning of syllables are represented by their own, independent characters. Syllables ending in a consonant are written without the final consonant.
