And today is no different. Writing began in Mesopotamia 5, years ago. In fact, the whole of civilisation seems to zoom in on those clever people from the city of Sumer around 3, BC. They transformed a system of clay tokens for counting sheep into a fully operational language. Cuneiform Script Ancient writing from Mesopotamia Cuneiform was made up of pictographs and wedge-shaped impressions pressed into soft clay tokens.
It started simply, being able to tell if livestock were coming or going to the temple, or whether they were dead, was all that was needed. At one point, there were up to 1, characters available. Fortunately for the Sumerians, the symbols were simplified over the years as the language evolved. Egyptian Hieroglyphs Hieroglyphics Scholars like to argue but, one affable day, they agreed that Egyptian hieroglyphs came into existence a little after the Sumerian language.
The language is very different but the idea of writing, it is suggested, came from Sumer. The language comprised of phonetic glyphs representing the alphabet, characters that represented whole words and other symbols that alternated the meaning of the first two.

Egyptian Hieroglyphs are a logophonetic system of writing were used in three ways: In some cases, each Hieroglyphic symbol represented one, two or three of the 24 Egyptian language consonants as phonograms: It was this concept that the Hebrews borrowed from the Egyptians to create their first true phonographical alphabet in history.
In other cases a hieroglyph represented an entire word. A standard hieroglyph for the sun would be followed by a second determinative to indicate something about the sunlight itself. Likewise a determinative would follow the hieroglyph for the moon to indicate different phases of the moon. In this way determinatives were phonically silent but conveyed additional written information.

They were, at the time, writing with a set of hieroglyphs that were used both as representations of the consonants of their language and as logographs a logograph or logogram is a letter, symbol, or sign used to represent an entire word. Over the next few centuries, this alphabet spread through the rest of the Middle East and into Europe.
Almost all subsequent alphabets in the Western world have either descended from it, or been inspired by or adapted from one of its descendants. The first people to extensively use the alphabet as it emerged from Egypt were the Phoenicians, who ruled a small empire of maritime city-states and colonies around the Mediterranean.

Z What is a patron saint? Patron saints are chosen as special protectors or guardians over areas of life. These areas can include occupations, illnesses, churches, countries, causes — anything that is important to us. The earliest records show that people and churches were named after apostles and martyrs as early as the fourth century.
Recently, the popes have named patron saints but patrons can be chosen by other individuals or groups as well. Patron saints are often chosen today because an interest, talent, or event in their lives overlaps with the special area. Angels can also be named as patron saints. A patron saint can help us when we follow the example of that saint’s life and when we ask for that saint’s intercessory prayers to God.

There are no wrong ideas! Don’t be a dick Submit original, interesting ideas. Sense, rationality, possibility and ethics are for sissies. If the entire purpose of the idea is the setup for a pun, it doesn’t belong here. If an idea stands on its own as an interesting, crazy idea without the pun, submit it.
Add the pun in the comments or maybe in the description if you really want to. Posts shouldn’t be for the sole purpose of complaining about a certain thing rather than add an alternative. Examples are “vote for Donald Trump” or “shut down Fox News”. It’s not a crazy idea, it’s just being a dick. This goes for everything of the sort.

December 13, ThinkStock You know the alphabet. There are quite a few letters we tossed aside as our language grew, and you probably never even knew they existed. Originally, it was an entirely different letter called thorn , which derived from the Old English runic alphabet, Futhark. Thorn, which was pronounced exactly like the “th” in its name, is actually still around today in Icelandic.
Yogh Yogh stood for a sort of throaty noise that was common in Middle English words that sounded like the “ch” in “Bach” or Scottish “loch. When the throaty sound turned into “f” in Modern English, the “gh”s were left behind. Eth Eth is kind of like the little brother to thorn. Back in the old days, the difference was much more distinct.
It also stood alongside the modern G or Carolingian G for many centuries, as they represented separate sounds.
