The Engreellic script was devised by Derick Pinto from Mumbai (Bombay) in
India. The script is an alternative way of writing English using letters
from the Roman, Greek and Cyrillic alphabets and the IPA. The script was
developed by first identifying all the phonemes existing in the English
language and then selecting a letter from the three scripts or the IPA
corresponding to that sound.
Wherever two sets of letters, divided by a comma, are indicated, the first
ones are to be used at the beginning of a word and the others, in the middle
or at the end of the word. The first line denotes the letter in upper and lower
case, the second gives the name of the letter and the third gives the sound
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.
