Snuffy Smith nwte Pf Sfor&lamet Ask Andy ™ Whomade up the alphabet? rom Suzanne Dougherty, Eastlake, Ohio History, they say, began when our remote ancestors discovered writing and reading. Then they could record their day by day doings and report the passing historic events. The great invention was bom when people began to settle in a few widely separated fertile valleys. Each community seems to have invented its own method of <'AN$WBR» FOR LITTI.E IIOM3V writing. The Egyptians by the rich, muddy Nile made an early start, perhaps 6,000 years ago. Some of our letters • descended from their first attempts at writing. v The early methods were different but almost everywhere the basic idea was the same. The alphabet progressed from pictures to letters. The first writings, were picturegrams. An ox was a simple sketch of a four-lejgged animal with horns on his head. In time, the pictures were simplified to sketchy hieroglyphs, The hieroglyph for the ox was just, a square with two. spiky horns. But neither pictures nor hierb- glyjJhs could be used for words such as if and but. It took ages to figure how this could be done. But finally the hieroglyphs were used as letters, each'one with a sound of its own. Its sound was the first sound of the word it once represented. For example, the ox symbol would be the first sound of the word ox. Several different phonetic symMls. coujd fee .strung" together to sound.out those inv possible ifs and. buts. The phonetic symbols that descended from ; ancient pictures finally became letters. The ox letter was borrowed and modified by the' Greeks and later by the Romans. Finally it became our letter A. Each of our letters has its own ancient story tp, tell.. You tracj? ttKeir separata histories in an encyclopedia. , • • Some years ago, one of Andy's helpers .figured that this information could help a young persqn learri the alphabet. For example,, you .can draw a picture of a snake that looks like letters. When the picture and the letter are: placed .together, the young reader sees that S makes a snakey Ssss sound. Suitable pictures were made ; for all the letters. Young;'readers soon learned their phonetics and strung them together to sound out whole words tacliirF ing the ifs and buts. Learning to read was the way our ancestors invented writing—from pictures to letters. Nowadays^, many school systems have re«' discovered this nice old to teach the alphabet. •Send questions on postal card to Ask Andy, P.O.
