Naljeogigeul    Naljeogigeul alphabet

The Naljeogigeul alphabet was invented by Bae Jun and was derived from his syllabic script, also called Naljeogigeul, which he developed as an alternative script for Korean. The Naljeogigeul alphabet is designed to make it easier to write other languages, especially languages with many consonant clusters.

Most characters in the alphabetic version of Naljeogigeul are borrowed, modified, or newly constructed, from the syllabic version of Naljeogigeul. When used with the syllabic version, the alphabetic version is usually used for annotation or to indicate pronunciation of unknown word, because it occupies a relatively small amount of space.
