Kerigal Kerigal

Kerigal was created by Nathan Tolman to help him understand phonetic alphabets. It is a phonetic alphabet designed to be reminiscent of Cyrillic, though most of those similarities amount to the grapheme equivalent of false cognates. It writes left-to-right and is intended to be used with English. There is some ambiguity in the vowel sounds, as the creator did not understand the full extent of vowel diversity and subtlety. Kerigal is caseless; there are no capital/uppercase letters.
