If you are interested in learning Arabic, there are many online correspondence courses that help you to learn Arabic or you can start taking home tuitions. No matter what you do, learning of Arabic alphabets is how you get started with. Arabic alphabets are very different when compared to English alphabets and may look like some erratically written script. The first alphabet in Arabic is Alef and the symbol for this letter somewhat looks like T in English language. It has a S like symbol over it which tells how to pronounce the alphabet. The S shape is known as hamzeh and is an accent mark. Sometimes the hamzeh appears beneath the alphabet that apprises you to pronounce it differently. The second letter of the Arabic alphabet is called baa. The symbol for the alphabet differs according to the positioning of the alphabet in the word. Baa is one of the joined letters in the Arabic language. Baa has two forms- a short form and a long form. The long form of the alphabet is used when the word ends with baa and the short form is used when the word starts with baa or it comes in between two letters.
Importance of Alphabet Coloring Pages Kids actually enjoy learning from an early age, only you should know how to teach them. Such alphabet coloring sheets make studies lot easier and lighter for them. They learn from the very beginning to take the studies like games and build strong base for learning things easily. Lots of children at higher classes cannot handle the pressure of studies because they dont know the exact process or method of learning because their preschool learning had been very much mechanical and dull. On the contrary preschool teens that are exposed to such easy learning process that makes things interesting and easier for them to study, they develop better learning skills and enjoy learning throughout life. The alphabets in colorful and designed methods help provide information much quicker and easier to the children and enable them to relate or learn things easily.
Remark In the present world, two types of incompatible writing systems exist. One is horizontal alphabetic system. The other is vertical logographic system. Representative for the former is Latin alphabet. Representative for the latter is Chinese system. Horizontality and verticality are responsible for these two types, respectively. Some vertical non-logographic systems, such as Mongolian script and Japanese syllabary, are intermediate systems influenced by these two types. These two types are both fit for reading, for their respective directions. One may think that written Chinese is primitive for it is poor in representing speech sounds. Here we point out that it is an advanced system in top-down direction. With that direction writing would never develop into alphabet on its own. When horizontal writing meets vertical writing, alphabetic system overpowers logographic system because horizontal extension is fitter for our eyes.
When symbols are arranged vertically, each symbol grows internally in accordance with the larger horizontal visual span then turns to next symbol. Conflict between text direction and stronger visual direction exists. Symbols are restricted into blocks, leading to logographic system. Top-down reading failed to lead to simplification of Chinese characters. On the contrary, characters were allowed to go more complex (Simple characters were also allowed to exist). The limit of complexity is constrained by recognizability during reading. Although characters failed to simplify, by utilizing horizontal visual span, one can maximize the amount of visual info-being-read while maintaining sufficient acuity. Although characters are read as units, internal detail is needed to recognize a character and distinguish between characters. Characters are composed of smaller structural units, such as strokes and radicals, which are not as standardized as alphabets do. There is also no standardized order of combining them since visual span goes to any direction inside a character frame. Not towards alphabet, Chinese characters did evolve into their modern form that facilitates reading. They are square-shaped with to-some-extent standardized components and rules for their formation.
The Greek alphabet is the first real alphabet and it is also the predecessor of the Latin alphabet. The early forms of this alphabet are written with the use of a syllabary. Also, it is adapted from the Phoenician alphabet with changes in the use of letters. The original alphabet only contains 24 letters. In Phoenician, the letters used were named after an object whose name started with that letter. Nowadays, there are a lot of alphabets that are being used today that were developed from the Greek alphabet. You can also find Greek letters that appear outside of the written Greek language in some forums such as mathematics and fraternity names.
Simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese coexist. The traditional Chinese should represent the genuine Chinese since simplification of Chinese characters was due to foreign influence. The simplification of Chinese characters was accompanied by change in writing direction. Change in direction is consistent with and also promotes simplification. Simplification and change from vertical to horizontal are in fact Chineses deviation from its essential nature. Characters internal structure is less concerned about. People are now accustomed to reason basing on double- or multi-character words rather than single characters. There is debate whether simplification of Chinese is beneficial. Simply put, as Chinese system has turned into horizontal system, further simplification should be its future.
