Cyrenglish (Сярєҥглиш)

Cyrenglish is a way to write English phonetically with the Cyrillic alphabet created by Holden Funk. It consists of a wide variety of characters from languages who are Slavic in nature and not. It is mainly used to write western Canadian English, specifically the English spoken in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. This would benefit learners of English as there is mainly a one-to-one correspondence between letters and sounds.
