Unifon: U+E740 - U+E76F

Proposal 1996-06-01; revision 1997-01-21

Unifon was invented in 1959 by John Malone, an economist from Chicago. It is intended to facilitate the learning of English in first-language and second-language classes, and to be used as a pronunciation key in English dictionaries.

The letter names are the words chosen by Malone to indicate the sounds of the letters; thus UNIFON LETTER BOW represents the sound /b/.
