Hebrew script is very different than Armenian script. It reads from right to left, and is sound based. The script is very old and has many linkages with Aramaic script.

Arabic and Hebrew both are semitic languages, but the letters are very different.

Thank you, brother. I have been a little busy lately. I think you are talking about a different person, because I'm not sure what MEIC is.

to the hebrew language i have to say its near to my assyrian language i do understand sometimes what they talk.


a short example for go away they say khomaka we use khush makha
there are much more.

but just to show you what i mean.


and hmm i think they wanted to have diffrent scrips then that of the aramic but the spelling is the same of the letters.


here in that list there are also some words we use to say


Image


like sun we say shimsha

and for cold karta

and for wind haua

for hot khma

but they changed their letters just to be diffrent from aramic like i heard maybe this is wrong.

dyaoko, here is a place to learn the alphabet:

http://www.akhlah.com/aleph_bet/aleph-bet.php

don't bother with the "rashi script." you only need to pay attention to the block script because it is used for books, newspapers and such. also, you should learn the cursive or "script" script, since this is how people write in modern hebrew.

when you click on the sound icon, you get the name of the letter and not its sound. kind of useless, actually.

but, in this list, you will see that some letters have two or three versions. the first versions of each are how the letter is written anywhere in the word but the end of the word. some of the letters have dots inside them. these are used at the beginnings of words or syllables. the last letter given is the terminal letter, the one used at the end of a word.

the letter that is next to last in the alphabet has two sounds. when the dot is on the right, it makes a "sh" sound like the "sh" in the word "shut." when the dot is on the left, it makes an "s" sound. hence the names of the letters, "sheen" for the left-dotted letter and "seen" for the right-dotted letter.

if you have questions, let me know.

the languages are relatives but not the scripts. The one we call Arabic was invented by Indians(Hindi's) in India.

dyaoko, maybe you are confusing armenian script with aramaic script.

the hebrew language adopted the aramaic script many centuries ago. the language is hebrew but the script used today is aramaic.

the original hebrew script was based on the phoenician alphabet, and looked more like it.
