The Deseret alphabet is an alphabet invented in the 19th century by Mormons in Utah for writing English. It was never particularly popular, and fell into disuse soon after its creation.

The idea was to reform the spelling of English so immigrants would find it easier to learn.

Unicode standard 3.1 includes the Deseret alphabet in positions 10400 to 1044F. (Some combinations of operating systems, Web browsers, and installed font sets will not be able to display this table correctly.)
