This category contains writing systems which use syllabaries, in which each symbol or grapheme represents a consonant and a vowel, or only a vowel, in some cases followed by a consonant or tone. For other writing systems which share some of the characteristics of syllabary systems, see Category:Abugida writing systems (systems where symbols represent consonants, but the symbols are varied depending on the following vowel), and Category:Abjad writing systems (systems where symbols represent consonants, and vowel marking is absent or optional).

This categorization follows the classification introduced by Peter T. Daniels (b.1951).


This category has the following 2 subcategories, out of 2 total.
