hats the similarities and differences
hieroglyphics was done by egyptians calligraphy was done by the Chinese
Hieroglyphics and cuneiform led to the development of written language.
Cuneiform uses triangle things and hieroglyphics use pictures like birds and other stuff. And cuneiform is from Mesopatmia.
No. Hieroglyphics is an ancient Egyptian pictorial script. Cuneiform writing was used by the Sumerians.
Cuneiform is a Sumerian langue, while hieroglyphics is Egyptian. 1 uses pictographs, Cuneiform doesn't.
Hieroglyphics are more advanced even however, cuneiform may be spreaded out worldwide, hieroglyphics used papyrus which is like paper we right in today. Cuneiform is written in clay tablets. Also cuneiform was much earlier than the hieroglyphics. The last thing I know is that Hierohlyphics was read horizontally to and vertically and had more letters to use than Cuneiform...
Cuneiform was used .
Hieroglyphics and cuneiform systems were ancient forms of writing.
The ancient Egyptian writing system is called "hieroglyphics."
Cuneiform and cursive, respectively .
The Egyptians did. Via a long way, our alphabet is also related to hieroglyphics (via Greek, Phoenician, Cuneiform, and then Hieroglyphics)!
Both use symbols, however for different purposes.
well it is the handwriting
both have names that are hard to say and spell :-)
I believe that cuneiform was one of the first languages ever. I am currently studying the Sumerians and ancient times and I am pretty sure that cuneiform and hieroglyphics were the first alphabets.
cuneiform was the first because the sumerians came before the egyptians and by the way I am in 6th grade.
Both are used to represent spoken languageBoth have symbols that represent consonants (at least in later Cuneiform writing).
One difference would be their written language. Ancient Egypt's line of communication was Hieroglyphics. Mesopotamia's was Cuneiform.
Sumerian cuneiform, Egyptian Hieroglyphics, Harrapan, Mayan and Chinese.
From what I understand, they are very different - the Egyptian hieroglyphics were actual pictures that represented emotion, or a physical thing. An eagle represented the bird, but also flying. The cuneiform technique was created by pressing a tool into clay to create symbols. so I would say that the Egyptians were more advanced at that time. Great question. Anyone else know?
Egypt used hieroglyphics, Mesopotamia used cuneiform
Egypt: hieroglyphics, pyramids, pharaoh. Sumer: cuneiform, ziggurats, bureaucracy.
