The Ewellic alphabet was invented in 1980 by Doug Ewell as an alternate way to write English. It is phonemic instead of phonetic, which means it indicates the approximate (instead of precise) pronunciation of words.

Ewellic is not part of the Unicode Standard. However the ConScript Unicode Registry (CSUR) has defined a range of the Unicode Private Use Area for Ewellic. CSUR coordinates artificial/constructed scripts (mostly), which facilitates font development and interoperability.
