Hangulized English Hangulized English

Hangulized English is a way of using Hangul to write English, devised by Michael Chen. It is phonetic, with one letter for each sound. To represent the extra consonants English has that Korean lacks, Hangulized English incorporates certain archaic letters and creates new double letters. In the featural spirit of Hangul, vowels are assigned primarily based on where in the mouth they are pronounced, rather than how English spelling typically represents them.

The vowels here are based on Standard North American English with the father-bother and cot-caught mergers.
