F=E4nyl=E4jikyl Inglyx [Phonological English]
Yes, it looks absolutely horrendous. But, IMHO, it is phonological to an
extent less then dictionaries list it, but more than English currently do=
Any thoughts? Has anyone else tried to devise a phonological spelling
system for English? Maybe one that looks a bit better? With another
script? Cyrillic, maybe? I think I myself shall try something on the
And to give an example and let people be able to figure out the various

The (DZ) is a place-holder... I am yet to figure out what letter or
combination to use for the (DZ). C is "ts", =EF is "y" as in yellow, x is
"sh", j is "j" as in james, and y is schwa.
Obviously the above is biased by my own dialect of English, but
ideally the 'official' spelling if ever such a system was implemented
would be derived from the national dictionary.
