Why do we use "A B C D", etc? We've developed our alphabet from a melting pot of cultures and languages. In their stage of alphabetic development (being one of the first major civilizations in the region), the most recognizable symbols were probably their religious icons and from their natural surroundings.

By the way, the above was a complete swag but it made sense as I wrote it.

AnswerThey had many things to do with animals the. They worshiped cats. AnswerHieroglyphics are a lot like a child's first alphabet book. They learn the letter sounds like the beginning of the name for the object pictured. The ancient Egyptians just used the picture instead of the abstract symbol (letter). Answer

It was not just there religion.

The Egyptians had gods that had animal heads and they worshiped some animals like the cat, and different birds like the vulture, and cobras (the vulture and the cobra were on most funeral mask's).

And all of those animals are in Hieroglyphics.


Hieroglyphics are the ancient writings of Egypt that are found on old tablets and in tombs.
