Different types of alphabet letters. Graffiti Fonts. New Graffiti
alphabet is a set of standard letters - basic written symbols or graphemes - each of which roughly represents the phonemes in spoken language, both as it exists now or as in the past. There are other systems, such as logographies, in which each character represents a word, morpheme, or semantic unit, and syllabaries, in which each character represents a syllable. Letters are classified according to how they indicate vowels:
  • The same way as consonants, as in Greece (true alphabet)
  • Abbreviation of consonants, as in Hindi (abugida)
  • Not at all, as in Phoenician (alphabetical)
The word "alphabet" came into Middle English from Late Latin word Alphabetum, which in turn comes from the Ancient Greek Αλφάβητος Alphabetos, from alpha and beta, the two first letters of the Greek alphabet [1.] Alpha and beta in turn came from the two first letters of the Phoenician alphabet, and meant ox and house respectively. There are dozens of letters that are currently used, the most common are Latin, [2] derived from the first true alphabet, Greece. [3] [4] Most of them are composed of lines (linear writing); exceptions are Braille, fingerspelling (Sign language), and Morse code. Via: Alphabet
