I have considered that alphabet is a result of visual refinement. However, in its thousands of years history, albeit undergoing changes, Chinese didnt develop into alphabet. Characters <1> remain complex over thousands of years development. Major simplification process hadnt occurred until last century. Number of characters was increasing. The question is: why did simplification occur so late? What kept Chinese characters complex for thousands of years? Was legibility principle not taking effect on Chinese system? It should. There should be something that prevented Chinese from developing into alphabet. Lets elaborate the concept of legibility.
When you are a parent, and you want to teach your kids ahead of time just before he would go to school, you can use the free online worksheets. There are lots of them available. You can let your kids learn online. Through this, your kids will be ready for school. These online materials are readily downloadable and can be printed for use. And the good thing about this is that you can produce as many copies as you want, until your kid learns and perfect the craft of writing. There are also teachers who use these kinds of techniques to teach in a more animated manner. The idea is to keep children interested because without their attention, it is difficult to make them absorb what you are trying to teach.
Nowadays, alphabet is used all over the world. There are more than ¾ of the worlds languages use alphabet, and about 60% of the worlds population speaks languages that have a written alphabet. Its important to write and read in order for the human society to communicate and learn about history. Until the invention of writing, the only way humans had to communicate was face to face. This prevented information from being able to be shared with any sort of wide spread. Based on alphabet, people developed the writing system which could help to preserve human knowledge in a thing called "book". Thanks to book, people could read and know more about the world and shape up the education system like today. Therefore, book is one of the greatest worth treasure in the world. Alphabet also plays an important part to traders and merchants in keeping records of their business.
Besides direct spread of Latin systems, the Latin alphabet is used to write languages originally written in other scripts (or none), a process called Romanization. Romanization can create new Latin alphabets-based system. For language already written in another script, most people consider Romanized system and original system as the same language, though. That is perhaps due to its direct representing original writing/speech. Although Romanized system is taken as original language, Romanization is in fact Latin alphabets expansion. The original language is annexed into Latin systems. Romanized system brings people closer to other Latin systems. Knowing the Romanized system, people are readily to learn other Latin systems. Romanization also brings new words into existing Latin systems, whose speakers use some Romanized words as foreign words, which would enter native vocabulary over time. Romanization continues due to the legibility of Romanized system. As existing Latin systems spread and grow, Romanization goes on to non-Latin system regions. Non-Latin systems are unlikely overpowered by Romanized systems alone, but it seems they would be overwhelmed by the overall expansion of Latin systems.
Benefits of using alphabet coloring pages If you have computer, printer and internet at your home you dont have to spend on the expensive coloring books anymore to teach preschool kids at home. It is just a matter of minutes. You can immediately get the coloring pages over the internet and start printing the pages. You save a great deal of money. Another benefit has already been discussed above, that kids enjoy colorful learning and they love such fun loving methods. Besides you can get multiple copies. That is because kids do have habit of destroying things specially the books and papers. If they tear apart one page, you can have another ready immediately for him/her. And everything is in digital format, thus you can store some pages in your computer too and get them printed when you need one.
As representative of Latin systems, English writing system is growing through representing knowledge, recording speech sounds and borrowing, among other means. The trend of Englishs dominance is continuing. Written English is used by more and more people in non-native regions and would eventually be adopted by all. English will also be spoken by more people following the spread of written English . Other writing systems may be replaced, Romanized or coexist with English. Written English is systematic. It has 26 letters, established rules for word-formation and grammar. Will it evolve in fundamental level, i.e. its scripts, lexicon or grammar? Or it will only continue growth basing on current system and rules? In near future, radical change seems unlikely. English has become international language. Without challenge, its basic look would not change. Rather, it would grow upon existing system when other language, culture and new-found knowledge are represented. On the long run, radical change cannot be ruled out. Theoretically, its future can be studied from its visual feature and is governed by legibility principle. In reality, the evolution is now a global process with billions of peoples participation. That is absolutely very complex. It is shaped by writings of every individual.
