Passy thanked Seif al-Islam for his visit to Libya in early May which was organized by GDIFCA and for the assistance in the course of the trial against the Bulgarian medics charged with infecting 393 Libyan children with the HIV virus.

 International Phonetic Alphabet - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Most of its symbols are taken from the Roman alphabet or derived from it, some are taken from the Greek alphabet, and some are apparently unrelated to any standard alphabet.
It was originally developed by British and French language teachers (led by Paul Passy) under the auspices of the International Phonetic Association, established in Paris in 1886 (both the organisation and the phonetic script are best known as IPA).
These teachers based the IPA upon the Romic alphabet of Henry Sweet (1880-1881, 1971), which was formed from the Phonotypic Alphabet of Isaac Pitman and Alexander John Ellis (Kelly 1981).

The creation of such a system appears first to have been suggested by Otto Jespersen to Paul Passy, a founding member of that group.
The system published by Passy and his colleagues in 1888 was based on earlier similar efforts, particularly a system for the transcription of English published by Isaac Pitman and Henry Ellis in 1847.
The 1888 IPA (and the 'International' nature of that system is the key difference) has been somewhat revised since its first publication, particularly at the 1989 IPA Kiel Convention, but has largely stood the test of time and been widely accepted and used in the field of linguistics.
