The Hal alphabet was invented by Kim Godgul as an alternative script for
Korean. It is based on the Korean Hangul alphabet
and there is a one-to-one match between the letters of Hal and Hangul.
Unlike Hangul, Hal is written linearly rather than being grouped into
syllables. The name Hal is a contraction of Hangul.
- Type of writing system: alphabet.
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines.
- Used to write: Korean
