About the Deseret Script

Wikipedia

The Deseret alphabet (/dɛz.əˈrɛt./) (Deseret: or ) is a phonemic English-language spelling reform developed in the mid-19th century by the board of regents of the University of Deseret (later the University of Utah) under the direction of Brigham Young, second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. George D. Watt is reported to have been the most actively involved in the development of the script.

In public statements, Young claimed the alphabet was intended to replace the traditional Latin alphabet with an alternative, more phonetically accurate alphabet for the English language. This would offer immigrants an opportunity to learn to read and write English, he said, the orthography of which is often less phonetically consistent than those of many other languages. Similar experiments were not uncommon during the period, the most well-known of which is the Shavian alphabet.

Young also prescribed the learning of Deseret to the school system, stating “It will be the means of introducing uniformity in our orthography, and the years that are now required to learn to read and spell can be devoted to other studies”.

Romanization

On October 27, 2015, a proposed ALA-LC romanization table for the Deseret alphabet” was submitted to the Library of Congress. The table was approved for use on February 25, 2016. The purpose of romanization tables is to allow library catalogs which cannot display non-roman scripts the ability to display alternative roman characters.
