Globish (also known as Parallel English) is an artificial language created by Madhukar Gogate that attempts to simplify English,[2] including the use of phonetic spelling,[3] and the removal of most punctuation and capital letters.[4] It was presented to the Simplified Spelling Society (now known as English Spelling Society) of the United Kingdom in 1998. According to its creator, it can be considered an artificial English dialect, as proof of the possibility of simplifying the orthography and pronunciation of standard English.

Alphabets

Globish uses ISO Latin Alphabets, with no diacritics or upper cases.
