I have a vision to create a collection of books for and about handicap-able children. I am the author and creator of I. C. Little,... a charming little bear who finds his way around in life. In this first book, I. C. Little travels through this delightful alphabet journey and enjoys many life experiences. Books featuring disabled characters are important in terms of ensuring that disabled children feel included and accepted. However, it's also important that we convey positive messages to able-bodied peers to understand and help all children learn acceptance and respect. My book collection of I. C. Little and friends teaches children the diverse world of special-needs children. I. C. Little isn't handicapped; he's handicap-able! This loving little bear doesn't point out what people with disabilities can't do but what they can do. read more
The International Phonetic Alphabet is a system of phonetic notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet. It was devised by the ...International Phonetic Association as a standardized representation of the sounds of spoken language. The IPA is used by lexicographers, foreign language students and teachers, linguists, speech-language pathologists, singers, actors, constructed language creators, and translators. This edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson. The transcription reflects the standard, regionally-neutral form of spoken British English known as "Received Pronunciation". Granted that most linguists agree that not much more than 4% of the population of Britain speak it today, RP was nevertheless traditionally based on educated speech in southern England; it is still widely taught and dictionaries for native speakers and learners of English still make use of it in their transcriptions. Because this is a novel, and meant to be read, it was decided to retain some orthographic features which are not normally kept in phonetic transcription: punctuation, italicization, and capitalization. Carroll's punctuation has been retained with the exception of the apostrophe marking the genitive (because "Duchess's voice" just looked wrong as "ˈDʌtʃɪs'ɪz vɔɪs"). ---- Ðiː ˌꞮntəˈnæʃənl Fəʊˈnetɪk ˈÆlfəbɪt ɪz ə ˈsɪstɪm ɒv fəʊˈnetɪk nəʊˈteɪʃən beɪst ˈpraɪmərɪlɪ ɒn ðə ˈLætɪn ˈælfəbɪt.

In his will, George Bernard Shaw left instructions (and some funds) for the development of a new regular alphabet for the English ...language. A design by Ronald Kingsley Read was chosen. In 1962, Shaw’s play “Androcles and the Lion” was printed in what became known as the Shaw Alphabet, or Shavian. This edition of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson. read more

Lewis Carroll is a pen-name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was the author's real name and he was lecturer in Mathematics in Christ Chur...ch, Oxford. Dodgson began the story on 4 July 1862, when he took a journey in a rowing boat on the river Thames in Oxford together with the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, with Alice Liddell (ten years of age) the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, and with her two sisters, Lorina (thirteen years of age), and Edith (eight years of age). As is clear from the poem at the beginning of the book, the three girls asked Dodgson for a story and reluctantly at first he began to tell the first version of the story to them. Many half-hidden references are made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. The Deseret alphabet was 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. It was intended to help make learning to write English easier. This wasn't very successful, though the alphabet does have interesting phonemic features, as well as being a fascinating part of Mormon history. This edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by John H. Jenkins and Michael Everson. read more

There are many half-hidden references are made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. This edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland presents the text transcribed into the Unifon alphabet. Unifon was developed as an auxiliary phonetic alphabet designed to facilitate access to literacy to English-speaking children, by presenting to them a writing system that worked by sound. Tests showed that children were able to learn to read rather quickly using this system, and, having made that breakthrough, were able to transition to traditional English orthography relatively easily. Unifon was developed in the 1950s by Dr John R. Malone, an economist and newspaper equipment consultant who became interested in phonetic writing while consulting with the Bendix Corporation, which was interested in questions of aviation communication. That work was abandoned when the International Air Transport Association selected English as the language of international airline communications in 1957. But Malone's interest in phonetic writing resurfaced when his young son complained about difficulties learning to read. From about 1960 to the 1980s, Margaret S. Ratz used Unifon to teach first-graders at Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. A variety of teaching materials exist using Unifon. From the 1974 to his death in 1993 John M. Culkin, a specialist in media studies, also promoted Unifon. The transcription used here is based on the Carnegie Mellon University Pronouncing Dictionary, and accordingly reflects American pronunciation-naturally enough, since Unifon was devised by an American. read more
