Summary/Abstract: The Interslavic language differs fundamentally from other languages, both natural and artificial, in that it consists of ranges of possibilities rather than a fixed set of rules. An official orthography seems out of reach, as it would go against the very nature of the language. But where standardisation fails, systematisation might succeed. The best way to ensure the necessary flexibility is a prototype orthography, consisting of a basic alphabet and an additional set of optional characters.
