Ainu Nuye (애누이닥 누여)

Ainu Nuye is a method of writing Ainu using Korean hangul devised by Michael W. Ryan. He sees the current script for writing the Ainu language (modified Katakana) as a terrible writing system. He took (one of/) East Asia's only alphabets, and the one which supports final sounds, and adapted it to Ainu. This new writing system is based on Hangul and can be learned in a morning. It is simple but intelligent, and its design fits with Han characters. Michael leaves the rest of the credit to King Sejong. Nuye means 'to write' in Ainu.
