21E™    21E™

21E™ is a phonetic code for writing secret messages in English devised by Kali Woodward, who initially invented it to help his son learn to read. It uses 19 letters from the Latin alphabet plus 27 special symbols for vowels and some consonants. There are three styles of 21E™: print, script and condensed, in which vowels are written above the other symbols/consonants, and can be stacked when they occur together. There is also a cryptic version in which there are no spaces between the words.
