Tanar    Tanar

The Tanar alphabet was invented by Tad Deffler for use in a role-playing game, and mostly done as a lark. It was primary used for English transcriptions. However, it also has symbols for Spanish consonants (such as ñ) and vowels (such as un-diphthonged long o).

There are two versions of Tanar: the Tanar-Vernacular alphabet, which is a 26-letter alternative alphabet for English, and Tanar-Formal, a 61-letter phonetic alphabet.
