this is a (slightly modified) version of the "P2 to TALK" phonetic writing system from the web series Petscop. in the series, it appears to be a method for inputting words in PS1 games by plugging in a second controller and using button combinations on that to write out words phonetically.

the only changes i've made here are adding inputs for /ʒ/ (L1○) and /ɔɪ/ (○), which aren't seen in the series and therefore don't have a known input combo. i tried putting them in places that made the most sense. there's still some gaps that could be filled in, but i'm not sure what else you would really need to add. i also used Unicode symbols to represent most of the buttons, so you can copy/paste them if you want to write things out with this.

(this is based on info compiled at the Petscop Wiki on Fandom and on r/petscop, with my own modifications. the system itself was made by @pressedyes.)
