Syllabary

English, along with many other Indo-European languages like German and Russian, allows for complex syllable structures, making it cumbersome to write English words with a syllabary. A “pure” syllabary would require a separate glyph for every syllable in English. Thus one would need separate symbols for “bag”, “beg”, “big”, “bog”, “bug”; “bad”, “bed”, “bid”, “bod”, “bud”, “book”, “bay”, “bead”, “bide”, “bode”, “boom”, “bird”, “Boyd”, “bow”, “blog”, “blow”, “belch”, “blurt”, “bore”, “black”, “breach”, “bleak”, “brash”, “blight”, “blurb”, “Borg”, “brought”, “bot”, “bard”, “blast”, “brand”, “brick”, “bleed”, “blood”, “bloom”, “broth”, “both”, “bode”, “bloke”, “broke”, “bloat”, “Blake”, “break”, “bake”, “bait”, “bade”, “blade”, “braid”, “boon”, “bone”, “bowl”, “barn”, “balm”, “beach”, “batch”, “botch”, “Butch”, “borscht”, “bald”, “bold”, “bane”, “bit”, “Bit”, “broad”, “bear”, “Brock”, “block”, “board”, “binge”, “bulk”, “breed”, “Breen”, “brine”, “brat”, “Brat”, “boomed”, “bleeds”, “bats”, “bleat”, etc.
