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.
- 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.

Sample texts in the Grand Alphabet
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)
Alle Menschen sind frei und gleich an Würde und Rechten geboren.
Sie sind mit Vernunft und Gewissen begabt und sollen einander im Geist
der Brüderlichkeit begegnen.
