WHO ARE “THE FONIX”

Did you know that THE FONIX comes from the English language Phoneme table? Have a look at the table below and see if you can spot the similarities:

We would like to introduce you to:


Which is pronounced like "JUDGE"
 
Which is pronounced like "SHORT"

Which is pronounced like "V" as in"VERY"
 
Which is pronounced like "R" as in "READ"

Which is pronounced like "A" as in "AMERICA"
 
Which is pronounced like "P" as in "PIG"

Which is pronounced like "TH" as in "THORA"
 

Which is pronounced like "OO" as in "HOOK"

Which is pronounced like "G" as in "GORDON"
 

Which is pronounced like "S" as in "ASIA"

Which is pronounced like "TH" as in "HEATHER"

They are fictional characters which look a little bit like Martians. They are noisy, excitable, adventurous and full of energy. They get on really well with young people. In fact – this is why they are called THE FONIX, because in English SMS messages – this is how we write PHONICS.

We hope you like them!
