Betadel alphabet Betadel alphabet

Betadel was created by Russell Perdue, an American student, as an attempt to create a better writing system for American English, and also as a code for him to write in. He wanted to make it phonetic, unlike the current way of writing English words. Each letter represents one sound, each sound is represented by one letter, and there are no diphthongs. The letters are based mainly off Cyrillic and Greek letters, because the creator though they looked cool. Betadel was named after its first two consonants - B (Beta) and D (Delta).
