Eslabónico is an alternative alphabet for Spanish invented by Ernesto Borio from Argentina. The idea of this alphabet is to get rid of ambiguity and redundancy be having a 1 to 1 relationship between graphemes and phonemes, and to do so with a little style.
The last four letters were added for English sounds.
Most of the consonants were inspired by Hangul:
Todos los seres humanos nacen libres e iguales en dignidad y derechos. Están dotados de razón y conciencia y deben interactuar con un espíritu de hermandad.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
