TAIGA Phonetics

Back Download

This elaborately designed brochure documents the phonetic alphabet Taiga. Developed for the German Philology Institute at the University of Innsbruck, the alphabet contains over 2,000 different glyphs. Built upon an existing typeface, the idea was to expand the alphabet and make it suitable for documenting all dialects in the Tyrolean and Bavarian regions, thus preserving them for the future in written form.
