Tower Orthography (Tawyr Oorthaagryfii)

Tower Orthography is an alternative spelling system for English invented by Timothy Patrick Snyder and Rebecca Spatz. Their aim was to make a simple and phonetic system of writing English using mostly letters from the Latin alphabet. The system is named after the the Bell Tower, a landmark on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, where they are both studying linguistics.
