A script puzzle

Something I recently read in Mikael Parkvall's _Limits of Language_ (great
linguisticsy resource, btw) gave me an idea for a re-envisioning of a
certain script which would serve reasonably as a code for English.  I've
wasted the last two and a half hours writing and coaxing LaTeX into
producing the following sample:

(a) Decode this.
(b) Which natscript was the template?

Hints (perhaps): I didn't feel like making this read RtL as arguably it
should have, and I've also omitted a bunch of superscript circles to reduce
clutter.  My English lect is rhotic, maximally low back vowel merging, etc
