Square Alphabet for English (Christish)    Square Alphabet for English (Christish)

The Square Alphabet for English was invented by Christopher Yale Tang (唐泰川) during a boring politics lesson in 2002. He had been wanting to create a secret writing system for quite a while and just started doodling. The name of the script comes from Christopher's English name and it can be used to write English, French and almost all Latin-alphabet-based languages. Christopher and a number of his friends use Christish to write letters and messages to each other.
