The Nuigul alphabet is a way of writing the Rapanui language with the Korean Hangeul script. It was created by Camila Jacob, a Chilean polyglot who is fluent in Spanish, English, Portugese and Korean.
Rapanui is the native name of Easter Island. It means "big Rapa". Hangul (한글) is the name of the Korean alphabet. "Han" means "great" and "gul" means in script. Therefore, Nuigul means "Big script".
The Nuigul alphabet should only be used to write the Rapanui language. Any loanword from Spanish or English should be written in the Latin alphabet.
