I do think the board would very much benefit from a Hausa guide though.

It would be right if I can have an online wordlist/dictionary and a reference grammar for most Tungusic and Para-Mongolic languages.

Use lots of rebus writing, to the point where there may be as many phonetic signs as logographic signs. Don't merge multiple signs into single compound characters like Chinese does; leave them independent and string them together.

It's not really a guide, but I have made a language with a sort of Egyptian-style conscript, if you want to look at that at all.

I've actually started learning Hausa, so when I'm somewhat proficient, I could do an AMA
