The Hanunóo script is used by the Hanunóo people in the mountains of Mindoro Island, The Philippines. It is used to write Hanunóo (Hanunoo/Hanuno'o).

Consonants have an inherent -a vowel. The other two vowels (-i and -u) are indicated by a diacritic above (for -i) or below (for -u) the consonant. Depending on the consonant, ligatures are formed, changing the shape of the consonant-vowel combination. Vowels at the beginning of syllables are represented by their own, independent characters. Syllables ending in a consonant are written with a special sign (pamudpod) to cancel out the inherent vowel.
