The False Crown[]

"The False Crown" or ‹La Coroneta› in Spanish This is a novel written by Adonái Castro that uses the arini.

In this novel, Arini was adopted as an international language because it was the native language of the winners of the World War, Fire Kingdom (or Thunderbolt Empire). Arini is used as a means of communication between two people who do not speak the same language, which is frequently used when dealing with migrants in the novel. The language is also used for international proper names, known as "eẋónimo", in English be could "exonym", is an additional name that people have and that is what other people with whom they do not share a common language call them, They are usually translations of their names in their native language. People can choose not to have names in their native language; in that case, like native Arini speakers, they only have the name in Arini, These types of names are known as “naturalized”.

The novel, however, is written entirely in Spanish, although it is made clear that the story takes place in Arini, the Spanish being a translation of the real events.

The alphabet within the novel is also different from the Latin one, altho ugh it is only shown on the covers or illustrations:
