Dialectal Paleotype and was developed by Alexander J. Ellis (1814-1890), a phonetician, philologist and music theorist. Ellis used his invention to represent the sounds of the dialects of English and undertook a major survey of (mainly) rural dialects in Britain in the 1880s.
Ellis created a number of other phonetic transcription systems to represent the sounds of English and considered some of them as suitable replacements for standard English spelling.
He was whining away, says she, for all the world like a sick child, or a little lass in a tizzy.
