The earliest manuscript dates from A. The script consists of 14 or 16 letters for vowels and 37 letters for consonants, see Table 2. The transliteration given in Table 2 differs in some points from that almost universally used until recently. The letters are written from right to left and are not connected.
A point dot is used to indicate the end of a word or the end of the first member of a compound, no distinction being made between the two. The letters have almost the same shapes in all manuscripts.
Only some Indian manuscripts show peculiarities: The large number of letters used suggests that their invention resulted from an attempt to record an orally recited text with all its phonetic nuances. For that reason the Avestan script must have been the deliberate invention or creation of a scholar or of a group of scholars see, e.
The Avestan script Writing phonological rules metathesis based on the Pahlavi q. The earliest Pahlavi manuscripts date from the fourteenth century A. This is proved for example by the fact that an early inscription on the lid of a sarcophagus found in Istanbul that for archeological reasons can not be dated later than A.

Gignoux, Glossaire des inscriptions pehlevies et parthes, Corp. I, London,p. In the Pahlavi cursive script almost all the letters represent several different sounds.
In addition, many individual letters of a word are joined to one another, with the result that extremely ambiguous ligatures occur.
Apart from the Pahlavi cursive script as used in the Zoroastrian church there was a still older kind of script that was to some extent less ambiguous. The sign 28 for d derives likewise from the unambiguous Psalter script.
In the Psalter script the sign for k differed from that of the Pahlavi cursive in that the Psalter sign ended in a flourish towards the right. In this way the flourish could be reinterpreted as a diacritical mark, which the creator of the script put to further use.
By removing the flourish the creator of the script obtained the sign 24 for c, which has a different shape in the Pahlavi cursive script. The Pahlavi alef was adopted as a 1 in the Avestan alphabet. In Pahlavi, alef had coalesced graphically with h, from which it was still distinguished in the Psalter script.
Thus, Pahlavi had only one sign to represent alef, h, and x. An unusual diacritic in the form of a loop at the end of a curved flourish was used to distinguish h 53 from a 1. The loop may have been a secondary addition providing graphical resemblance to p 31since a variant form of h 53 in brackets without the loop is found in such manuscripts as H2 and J9.
By extending the curve further upwards than in the unlooped variety of h it was possible to distinguish x 18 from both a 1 and h However, as early as in Middle Persian inscriptions from the third century A.
The Avestan letter o 11 corresponds in graphic shape to a special form of Pahlavi l that is found only in Aramaic heterograms. The letter e 9 seems to have a similar origin. This pronunciation is actually attested in the later Pahlavi literature. This sign was taken over unchanged for n in the Avestan alphabet A slight bend in the stroke was made to distinguish Avestan u 15 from n since Pahlavi w was used in internal position also to designate the sound u.
The Pahlavi script had very inadequate means to designate the vowel sounds. By contrast the creator of the Avestan script quite clearly invented a special sign for every vowel distinguished in the oral tradition.

Metathesis (/ m ɪ ˈ t æ θ ɪ s ɪ s /; from Greek μετάθεσις, from μετατίθημι "I put in a different order"; Latin: trānspositiō) is the transposition of sounds or syllables in a word or of words in a sentence. Most commonly, it refers to the interchange of two or more contiguous sounds, known as adjacent metathesis or local metathesis.

Writing Phonological Rules. 2. Phonetics - Phonological rules: In the lexicon of a language, each word is represented in its underlying, or basic, form, which discounts all of the alternations in pronunciation that are predictable by phonological rules.
For example, there are phonological rules that will account for the variations in the placement of stress and the alternations of vowel .
