If you could see the inscription on a Roman monument of the third century B.C., yOu'd be able to identify the letters. The capital letters used then'are almost exactly like those we use Engjish. And that's because our alphabet is taken from the Latin alphabet used by the Romans. The Idea of the alphabet of course, was developed long before the Romans. It was a long, slow process that went through many changes. It started with "picture writing," in which pictures were used to convey a message, From there it went to "idea writing,',' where each picture represented an idea. For example, the picture of a foot might indicate the verb "to walk." ' ' .'. After that came "syllabic writing," where the symobols or pictures came to represent combinations of sounds. Anil finally, the great step leading to 'our alphabet was made yearly 3,500 years ago by a peoople liying near the eastern shore of .the Mediterranean. They realised that tor one particular sound the same sign could always be used, just as we write the letter "n" the same way In words like "nut," "end," and "den." Therefore, they used a limited number of signs in this manner. £|ach sign stood for one particular sound, and all the signs together made up an alphabet. *A-'development oj this alphabet was; used by the ancient Hebrews and th§ Phoenician!; Jn their Ian- gua'ge, the first letter Pi the alphabet, ad the letter used whenever they needed v «n "a" sound, wag called >"aJyV the second, letter was known as %e(h." The Greeks took over this llpjiabet, changing It slightly. Their firs* letter became "alpha" and the "beta." Then came the Romans, who took the Greek letters made certain changes and additions, and has is the alphabet that came to be the peoples of western Europe, Our English alphabet is derived from this Latin alphabet. The Latin alphabet, by the way, has 21 letters, with X placed at the end,-The English alphabet added the letters 1 G, J. U, :W,':and-Y, and thus has 26 letters. We also took the Z and.placed it at the end. FUN. TIME) ' The Chuckle Box Judy: Have you heard? I'm engaged to an Irish boy, Jane: Oh, really? •;•'•'• Judy: No, O'Reilly.
