I was working through a test and saw an image with some familiar gibberish in it.

enter image description here

At first glance, it looks like Aurebesh, the language from Star Wars, but some of the characters don't line up, and a couple look like they're flipped around. Is there another character set being used here, or is it all just garbage?

    What test is this? Where did you see it? – Valorum Oct 1 '18 at 21:26
  • This is either too broad with no context / there is nothing to indicate that this is on topic – NKCampbell Oct 1 '18 at 22:01

    It was an online training test. I looked over it with the Aurebesh map from wookiepedia and saw there were a few letters that are similar, second line character 4 is a flipped character. It was just used an example of a fake email. I thought it was off topic, but saw this question: scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/160805/… – CBredlow Oct 1 '18 at 22:05
  • It looks somewhat like Hebrew, except that the punctuation indicates that this text flows from left to right. In the word at bottom right, the fourth character from the left resembles aleph. Maybe this is a collection of characters from various languages. – Gaultheria Oct 2 '18 at 0:23

    You could try Omniglot, but I can't see anything that matches at a glance. But then, I'm basing my glance on font rather than specific letter shape. – Pam Oct 3 '18 at 10:59
