Design of Characters and North Semitic Alphabet
Category: Character Theory
Natural influencers influence design of characters or letters of conlangs very much because except Chinese, the letters of all natural influencers are descendants of the North Semitic alphabet e.g. Arabic, Devanagari, Cyrillic and Latin script. Our world is filled with the descendants of the North Semitic alphabet. Most of characters which we see in a daily life are the descendants of the North Semitic alphabet except Hangul Korean alphabet, Hanzi or kanji Chinese characters and their offspring (e.g. kana in Japanese).
All of the descendants of the North Semitic alphabet are phonograms.
Hanzi is ideograms. Hanzi is often ignored because conlangs usually adopt phonograms.
