Burmish (ဗးမိၩ)

Burmish is a way to write English using the Burmese script invented by Marc Harder after being fascinated by the shapes of the letters. The letters of the script can be broken down into four categories; onset consonant letters, vowel diacritics, coda consonant diacritics, and "other", which affect the syllable structure in different ways.
