Absolutely not. Each one has a different amount of letters. English uses the Latin alphabet. Hawaiian has a 12 letter alphabet and so on. Some languages such as Russian, Hebrew, Arabic use alphabets with different characters from the Latin alphabet.
Answer . The Latin Alphabet has Phoenician origin and it passed indirectly to the Latins: Greeks were the first to adapt and modify the alphabet from Phoenicians and then they passed it to the Etruscans, who they also modified it. Latin Alphabet uses both Etruscan and Greek elements but it was furt…her modified by the ancient Romans to write the Latin language. . However, both Greek and Latin alphabets have significant differences from the Phoenician, which for example had only consonant sounds. Greeks modified the scripts so that they would represent vowel phonemes as well. . The Phoenician alphabet appeared around the 11th century BC and it is believed, without any significant proof, that it is relevant to the Egyptian hieroglyphs through the Proto-Sinaitic alphabet.

Some of the languages of the indigenous peoples of North America had no written form. The indigenous peoples of Australia also had no written language, I believe, in a formal sense. In many cultures have very elaborate art forms that express the elements of a story, but these don't count as formal w…ritten languages. Many of these languages have since developed alphabets and written forms. Unfortunately this alone will not prevent many of these now living languages from dying out. Languages are being forever lost every year. Here are some written languages that do not use an alphabet: Chinese Japanese Cherokee Ancient Egyptian (MORE)

It is true that Latin is a dead language. However, the term "dead" simply implies that the language is no longer spoken. As having been a Latin student for several years, I realized that, although it is not spoken, studying the Latin language has many benefits. For example, the language has a defini…te effect on vocabulary and sentence structure, as well as greatly increasing logical thinking skills. It is also believed to have a great effect on SAT scores. Having taking the SATs, I found myself using Latin base words quite frequently in the vocabulary section. Hope this helps! (MORE)
The Latin language isn't necessarily the language most used in science, but many words that we use derive from words in Latin. This can include prefixes, suffixes, and even whole words can be used. I know this because I take it and there are many words that have been taken to make English words. If …i remember correctly, 34% of the English language comes from Latin. For instince, the Latin word descendo means to go/climb down, or descend. (MORE)
The modern English Alphabet evolved from Phoenician: through Hellenic; Greek; Roman; Old English; Middle English; Modern English.. The letters for the phonemes: F; U; V; W; Y. Came from the Phoenician WAW; their name for the "w" phoneme in modern English. P: Phonecian symbol for the mouth. As… in Pandoras Box, the human mouth.

The Classic Latin alphabet is missing J, U, and W. There were no lower case letters at first, and K, Y and Z used only for writing wo…rds of Greek origin. The letters J, U and W were added to the alphabet at a later stage to write languages other than Latin. J is a variant of I, U is a variant of V, and W was introduced as a 'double-v' to make a distinction between the sounds we know as 'v' and 'w' which was unnecessary in Latin. (MORE)

No. An alphabet is not a language. It is a set of symbols usedto write a language. One alphabet can be used to write more thanone language. Because an alphabet represents sounds, to some degreeany alphabet can be used to write any language, although mostlanguages use one preferred alphabet. . For e…xample, Italian, French, Spanish, German and English areall written with essentially the same alphabet, called the LatinAlphabet. Russian is among the languages usually written using theCyrillic alphabet, which looks very different from the LatinAlphabet. But it is possible to render the sounds of Russian in theLatin alphabet so that those who are only familiar with thatalphabet can read and understand names and other simple writtenwords. This widely used process sis called transliteration. . An alphabet is what makes the written part of a language .Each letter has a certain sound that it makes (typically one).These sounds are called phonemes, or the smallest positedlinguistically distinctive unit of sound. When letters are put together, they produce different series ofsounds, making words, and words (as well as rules of how and hownot to use them, like 'i before e except after c' and 'never starta sentence with a conjunction'), and words make up languages.

Though Yiddish, which uses Hebrew letters, looks similar whenwritten down to a non-speaker of Yiddish or Hebrew, it is in factan entirely different language. Hebrew arose in the Middle East and falls into the Afro-AsiaticSemitic family of languages whereas Yiddish is an Indo-EuropeanGermanic languag…e that arose in Germany and Eastern Europe - it issimilar to Hochdeutsch, High German, which would have been theeveryday language of Jews living in those areas (Hebrew would havebeen used during worship and rarely by women who were not requiredto learn it due to the outdated Jewish concept that females are"closer to G-d" and more holy than males), but uses the Hebrewletters with which they were familiar. As it was spoken by Jews in many different nations, from Russia toWestern Europe, is is sometimes called the first internationallanguage (others being Esperanto and Volupuk). Yiddish essentially combined Hebrew alphabet and some words withGerman words and terms and was used by many of the Ashkenazi Jewsof Europe.

Which ancient people developed an alphabet that gave rise to the Hebrew Greek and the Latin alphabets still in use today?
There is no ancient people that did this. While the Phoenicians developed an alphabet that gave rise to Hebrew, Greek, and Latin, the Phoenician alphabet is not still in use today.
It depends on which alphabet you want to compare to the Latin Alphabet. You would have to specify which alphabet you use.
I can illustrate the reason by giving an example from my own experience: Giving a talk on the use of herbs in medieval medicine to a group of visitors, I was explaining about the herb "lady's mantle". Everyone knew what I meant, except some Germans among the group, who looked puzzled. When I ment…ioned its Latin name ( alchemilla ) they immediately knew which plant I was talking about. The same applied to each of the herbs in turn - the English common name meant nothing to them, but the Latin name was immediately understood. Plants, insects, birds and many animals have different local names in each country (sometimes many different names even within the same country). Giving each one a specific and universal Latin name avoids confusion and mistakes - Latin is the same all over the world and acts as a kind of universal scientific language. Latin was also the language of education for many hundreds (if not thousands) of years, so it was an obvious choice. (MORE)
