A New Phonetic Alphabet For World Peace?

A Syrian banker living in the UK, has taken it upon himself to create a new phonetic alphabet in the hope that it will bridge division between countries and languages. Jaber George Jabbour says that the new phonetic alphabet, called SaypU, can be used for writing all languages. Jabbour believes that misunderstandings around the world create barriers and his new phonetic alphabet could break down those barriers, possibly bringing world peace.

History has shown that language misunderstandings have provoked conflicts. Jabbour’s philosophy is that “If people pronounce and speak in the same way it makes people feel closer to one another. I do think the world with a single alphabet would be a more peaceful place.”
