Yes—it is! It's about the bast transliteration system for Ladino that I've seen (others I saw weren't as precise nor easy-to-use); circumflexes are used on (c, j, y, z), while barred forms are employed for (b, d, g, k)—a cross between modified Spanish spelling and the Esperanto alphabet.

UMRE is (of course) my *Universal Revisional Modern English* phonetic notation system that's based on standard transliteration systems for English, yet has universal coverage.
