Grand Alphabet of English, German and Russian

The Grand Alphabet was created by Matthew Whitaker in order to write English, German and Russian. Matthew's aim is to unify the alphabets of these languages to enable speakers of each to read the others without too much difficulty. He chose these languages because his native language is English, he is studying German and is interested in Russian.

Notable features

  • The letters correspond almost entirely to letters (or common combinations like "th" and "sch") in the three languages rather than sounds.
  • Anyone who knows one of these three languages can work out how to use the alphabet to write that language, without any knowledge of the other two.
  • This alphabet can also be used to write 'Germatik', a language Matthew is creating, based on German and English and Germanic roots.
