Minngeul Minngeul

Minngeul "Minnesota-Script" was invented by Tom McMillen in 2014 as an alternative way of writing English. Plosive and nasal consonants are variations of Korean Hangeul. The l letter is same as rieul in Hangeul, with r being a reverse of the character. An extra dash inside or above the character indicates a voiced consonant. The Ur, As, Iss, Ar, and Yr staves of the Younger Futhark Rune row are used for vowels, a dot or umlaut is added to these to make additional vowel sounds.
