The spelling system of the Arrernte language

http://www.clc.org.au/articles/info/have-you-ever-wondered-why-arrernte-is-spelt-the-way-it-is/

This web page for the Central Land Council discusses the issues of the spelling system chosen to represent the Arrernte language. Among the issues discussed are
• why not the the English spelling system
• why not a phonetic system
• the system of sounds used in Arrernte
• why different Aboriginal languages use different spelling systems
• can the current system be improved

It illustrates the issues by comparing them with the spelling systems of English and other languages.
