An Alphabet for English-IV.
Crown, J. Conrad
The current spelling of words in English is so lacking in consistency that the time is ripe for the adoption of an alphabet that embodies some semblance of phonetics. This paper proposes a new alphabet for English that uses the English (Roman) letters as elements so that current type and typewriters can still be used. Furthermore, allowance is made to distinguish the great number of homonyms that occur in the English language. The new alphabet is presented in four stages, starting with an Initial Teaching Alphabet, then adding successively alternate vowels, consonant modifications, and finally special letter strings.
