The idea is to read other alphabets as if they were Roman.

This is great! It's the first time I've seen a romanization scheme that showed the sounds and glyphs alongside one another. It should be useful to people who do speech synthesis and those who localize games.

I agree. This is a clever idea. Two things, however: 1) Shei is 'sh'; 2) Shima is 'ch'. Those are the Coptic letters, by the way. :)

Thank you both very much for your input. I am not an alphabet scholar, and so I am likely to make some mistakes. I very much appreciate any corrections :)

It’s interesting that at least: “A” and “B” are different shapes in Greek as they are in Latin. Also that upper capitals have no diacritics, but upper lower-case letters do.

I’d say that Cyrillic could be added pretty easily.

The characters on the bottom are larger because some alphabets have some pretty complex characters, so I am making space for them.
