What if we had no alphabets in our languages
Ever wondered if there were no alphabets in any language? Would verbal communication then be the only way to express ourselves? Convey your views on this intriguing possibility!
We have different languages and we converse through these languages. However, for our conversations, we can manage without specific forms for the letters and words used. But these had to be represented using symbols in due course. This led to the formulation of symbolic forms, which we now call as alphabets. Again, these alphabets were independently developed in different parts of the world. The speaking patterns and words used were also very different from place to place. Obviously, the forms of alphabets also became different. Later these became different languages. Now the languages help to convey one's ideas to others. Slowly corresponding alphabets gave better clarity for the messages conveyed.
Suppose these alphabets were not invented to scribble down what one has in the mind, conveyance of ideas would have been only through speech. It implies that the preservation of what was conveyed was not possible. So the invention of alphabets in different languages was the starting point of education and preservation of knowledge. Think about a situation where no alphabets are there in a language. In fact, there are certain languages without alphabets even within our country.
