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.

Any thoughts?
