Cuneiform

Cuneiform is one of the earliest writing systems in human history. Was invented by Sumerian people. Beginning in Sumer at the end of the fourth millennium BC (Uruk IV period) to convey the Sumerian language, which is a separate language, the wedge-shaped handwriting begins as a symbolic system.

In the third millennium, image wall icons have become simpler and more abstract when the number of characters is used increasingly smaller (Hittite cuneiform). The system consists of a combination of logophonetic notation, negative alphabet and sylltables.

Egyptian hieroglyphs

Ancient Egypt hieroglyphic to Haɪf; The Greek word ἱερογλύφος means "sacred touch", which also writes Τὰ Ἱερογλυφικά γράμματα) is a formal writing system used by ancient Egyptians containing a combination of signs and letters. The Egyptians used the inscriptions to record religious texts on papyrus and wood. The less formal variations of this character, known as monks and civilians, are technically not a symbolic.

The image is composed of three types of engraving: phonetic, composed of separate phonetic letters that can act as a letter; Sign, express the shapes; And the words are limited, narrowing the meaning of a sign or phonetic words.

When the writing grew and became widely populated in Egypt, the simple forms of carvings developed, which led to the scribes (priests) and the population (inhabitants). These variations are also more appropriate than the image symbol when used on papyrus. However, the script text does not disappear, which exists next to other forms, especially at the temples and in the form of the other official handwriting. Rosetta Stone has text-shaped parallel letters and a civilian budget.

It is clear that all of the iconic characters are few or more iconic: they present real or virtual elements, which are sometimes stylized and simplified, but in general they can all be validated in the form. However, the same notation can, depending on the context, be translated in different ways: as a phonetic (phonetic reading), such as a sign, or as a symbol (semagram; "term") (semantic reading). The term is not read as a phonetic component, but is made easy to understand by distinguish words from other identical pronunciation words.

Early Semitic alphabets

The correct letters are the first (phonetic letters, assigning each symbol corresponding to a phonetic, but not necessarily each syllable to an icon) that appeared around 1,800 BC in ancient Egypt, as a way of describing the language developed by the Semitics served in Egypt , but these principles of letters were not imported into the symbolic writing system of Egypt throughout the millennium. These early phonetic letters were still less valued for centuries. And they only became important when at the end of the bronze period, when the Sinaitic letter of money was divided into two branches, the Canaanite letter system (c. 1,400 BC) and the South Arabian alphabet (c. 1,200 BC). The Canaanite letter system is probably affected by the spelling Byblos system, which is still undecryption and subsequently influences the letter Ugantic (c. 1,300 BC).

Phoenician alphabet

The Phoenician alphabet is the Canaanite letter system which was further developed in the Iron era (which is said to inherit from the end of this system in 1,050 BCE). This letter system brought to the advent of Aramaic letters and Greek letters; Then through the Greeks, led to the advent of Asian minor letters and ancient Italic letters (including Latin) in the 8th century BC. The Greek letter entered the vowels symbols. The Indian Brahmic Group is probably formed in the 5th century BCE from the exposure to Aramaic handwriting. Greek and Latin inscriptions in the early centuries are the analysis of several European character systems such as the letter Runes, Gothic letters and Cyrillic letters. In the meanwhile, Aramaic handwriting is the origin of the Hebrew alphabet, Syriac letters and Arabic letters; The South Arabian alphabet brings the formation of Ge'ez letters.
Also this time (the 4th century BC), the Japanese script was born from Chinese handwriting.
