Swedish Dialect Alphabet

The Swedish Dialect Alphabet (Swedish: Landsmålsalfabetet) is a phonetic alphabet created in 1878 by Johan August Lundell and used for the narrow transcription of Swedish dialects. The alphabet consists of 118 characters, in which each sign denotes a sound of the Swedish language. Many of them are not included in Unicode.

In 2007, a proposal was made to encode 106 characters from the Swedish Dialect Alphabet into Unicode.[1] As of 2013, this proposal is still outstanding.
