A very short on Ironik

Ironik is a method to register spoken Persian and some other languages after some simplification based on Petskurni. In this method we have 4 labial (p, b, f, v), 2 dental (t, d) , 4 avoelar (s, z, ʃ, ʒ), 4 glottal (k, g, x, G), 3 liquid (l, r, j), 2 nasal (m, n), 6 vowels (æ, e, o, a:, i:, u:) and 2 quasi-vowels (h,?).

In Ironik, since it is based on Petskurni simplification theory, tʃ and dʒ in Persian phonology are simplified as t+ʃ and d+ʒ, respectively.

It is believed that since in Persian phonology we have 6 vowels and 23 consonants which two of those are believed to be compound/impure consonants (namely tʃ and dʒ) and another is stop/zero consonant, which is represented by

if we reduce 23+6 by 2+1 we would have 26 sound in Ironik phonology which it is believed that, since the numerical equivalence, Latin alphabet should be perfectly suitable for Ironik/Persian.
