The Lanna Kingdom was a state in northern Thailand that existed from the 13th to the 18th centuries. The language used in the Lanna Kingdom was a variant of the Tai language family, and the writing system used was a script called "Lanna," also known as "Tai Tham" or "Tham."
The Lanna script is an abugida, meaning that each consonant has an inherent vowel sound, which can be modified by diacritic marks to indicate other vowel sounds. The script is written from left to right, with no spaces between words. It is similar to the scripts used in other Tai-speaking regions, such as the Tai Lue and Tai Dam scripts.
Lanna script was primarily used for religious texts, including Buddhist manuscripts and inscriptions, as well as for official documents and literary works. It was also used for everyday communication among the people of the Lanna Kingdom.
Today, the Lanna script is no longer widely used in Thailand, but it is still preserved in some religious texts and manuscripts. There are also efforts to revive the use of the script, particularly among the Tai Lue people in northern Thailand and Laos.
