Shavian alphabet

If you have stumbled on this page and cannot read theย other pages on Project Ormin, congratulations! You have encountered the Shavian alphabet.

The Shavian alphabet is a phonemic alphabet designed for the writing of English. ย It has featural elements, in that unvoiced consonants are represented by ‘tall’ letters, voiced consonants by ‘deep letters’, and vowels, liquids and nasals by ‘short’ letters. While the Shavian alphabet can be used to represent many accents of English, Project Ormin uses the General British pronunciations presented in the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionaries as a fairly neutral standard.
