Phoenician Alphabet

Post  David Strauss on Sun Oct 05, 2014 2:13 pm

In class we talked about the Phoenicians. They had a kind of alphabet which is like the grandfather to Arabic languages. This was basically an evolved form of the Hieroglyphics that appeared around 1200 B.C. This was a complex alphabet because it doesn't have any vowels meaning it is a consonantal alphabet. Like ancient civilizations they wrote with a Stylus and it was written from right to left. For me, this alphabet is a great advanced step to our original alphabet.

Nice topic! Phoenician alphabet had mostly pictures and images. First those images represented sounds, but then they made each represent a single word.
