What are the phonemes of Amenglish?  Check out any dictionary pronunciaton guide.

Below are qlippits showing the 40 sounds (phonemes) of the English language in truespel notation.  This notation works.  I've taken 2 years to respelled the English language using it.  Anyone can use it going to and use the free converters.

Truespel is a superior notation because simpler is better -Occam's razor.  It's also more useful.  It can be taught to children as an inital reader that is retained in their dictionaries as a pronunciation guides and in translation guides.  It is copy/pastable in emails with no problem, and in filenames.   It is capitalization and punctuation friendly and can be used as a writing system.  It is English-friendly, the lingua franc of the world.  NONE of these things are true with present phonetic notation.
