Anglo-Arabic, created by Pangus Ho, is a fully phonetic writing
system that can be used to write English. It borrows the shape of
Arabic letters so that it looks like Arabic at a glance, however
few of the letters have the same sound as they do in Arabic. For
example the letter "nūn", which is used to symbolize the
sound /n/ in Arabic, is pronounced /t/ in Anglo-Arabic. The main
objective is to make similar consonants have similar letter shapes.
Consonants, long vowels, and diphthongs are represented by letters,
while short vowels are represented by diacritics.

Sample text in Anglo-Arabic
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
