Cyrenglish (Сырє̋ҥглиш)

Cyrenglish is a way to write English with the Cyrillic alphabet created by Holden Funk. It uses letters from Slavic languages and others. It is designed to write western Canadian English, particularly of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. There is more or less a one-to-one correspondence between letters and sounds, which would benefit learners.
