Albanian Supercup history from rsssf thumb 250px The letters of the Vithkuqi alphabet matched to their Albanian alphabet modern Albanian equivalents (File:VithkuqiScript.png). '''Vithkuqi''' script, also called '''Büthakukye''' or '''Beitha Kukju''' after the appellation applied to it by German Albanist Johann Georg von Hahn, was an alphabet invented for writing the Albanian language between 1825 and 1845 by Albanian (Albanians) scholar Naum Veqilharxhi. Though the script is sometimes erroneuosly claimed to be named after its inventor, as in Carl Faulmann's ''Das Buch der Schrift'', the alphabet's name is derived from Vithkuq, a village in the Korçë region where Veqilharxhi was born. Vithkuqi script was specifically designed to be as religiously neutral as possible, avoiding the duplication of Greek, latin, or Arabic characters. It had a near-perfect correspondence between letters and phonemes, but lacked characters for modern Albanian "rr", "xh", and "zh". The script never took hold because of its inventor's premature death and because of the prohibitive costs of cutting new type for the invented characters; nevertheless, a number of documents utilizing the script were published in the late nineteenth century. The script was eventually overwhelmed by the Greek (Greek script), Arabic (Arabic script) and Latin (Latin script) scripts it had been designed to supplant, the latter becoming the official one in 1909.
