Inhglærantow (IGRT) is an alternative way to write English invented by Robbie J N in 2023 for a new spelling system for English that he created in 2016. The name Inhglærantow is pronounced [ɪŋglərantoʊ] and is a combination of English and Esperanto.
The letters are made up of horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines, allowing for usage in 16-segment displays. The vowels and vowel-extenders are formed into variations of X and Y shapes using 3 or 4 prongs. The remaining letters are formed from either a square or triangle plus 1 or 2 prongs. The secondary versions of H and R are used only for digraphs so the spelling system should not be confusing.
