The Evolution of the English Alphabet Chart [In Progress]

The Evolution of the English Alphabet Chart shows how over the last 4000 years the English alphabet along with at least 13 other major alphabets has evolved (or rather mutated) out of the Ancient Hebrew alphabet. The harmony in graphology (shape) of the letters of the alphabets is strikingly similar from alphabet to alphabet. This proves the Jews are not the only ISHaRaALites. Also it reveals that the the key to unlocking the the Name of the Creator is through the two-houseidentity of the (bloodline) ISHaRaALItes.

I compiled it using by using many different alphabetological and liguistic, webpages and books.Some of the charts from these sources are shown further down the page; others I have yet to reference.

Note: The numbers at the top of my chart are primarily for reference purposes only, and do not denote exact order of sequence that the alphabets appeared over history. The relationship of these alphabets is best illustrated using a tree—like my True Hebrew Alphabet Family Tree.

How the Current (Mar. 3, 2010) Version of the Chart is Different to the Last (Dec. 26, 2008) Version

1) Three English letters have been moved between rows in the final column because they were wrongly in rows based upon transcriptional (sound) not transliteral (shape and historical) correlation. The latter correlation of these letters is discussed in my detailed introduction to the chart called, "Development of the Alphabet Chart" further down the page. The letters that have moved are:

a) Y—this has been moved from the hand and arm pictograph (ID [Modern Jewish Hebrew (MJH) yod]) row to the tent peg (UU [MJH waw]) pictograph row. (A pictograph is a pictorial sign or symbol: normally a picture-letter.)

b) C—this has been moved from the open palm of hand pictograph (KaP [MJH kaph]) row to the foot pictograph (GaM [MJH gimel]) row.

c) F—this has been moved from the open mouth pictograph (PA [MJH pe]) row to the tent peg pictograph (UU [MJH waw]) row.

2) Two Old and Middle English letters have been added to the final column:

a) ð—this has been added in the final column as the best English transliteration for the basket pictograph THaTH [the equivalent of MJH teth]. This is because this letter is an Old English (mid 5th C to mid 12th C) and Middle English (late 11th C to about 1470) letter, with the same sound as THaTH which was TH.

b) ∫— this has been added in the final column as the best English transliteration for the two front teeth pictograph SHaN [the equivalent of MJH shin]. This is because this letter is an Old English (mid 5th C to mid 12th C) and Middle English (late 11th C to about 1470) letter, with the same sound as SHaN which was SH.

3) The English letter S has been removed from the two front teeth pictograph (SHaN [MJH shin]) row because of amendment 2) b) (just above); also there is already one row (for the destination and pathway pictograph [TSaD (MJH tsadi)]) that has S as the best English transliteration. One English letter cannot be the best transliteration for more than one Ancient Hebrew pictograph.

4) The transcription TS has been removed from the destination and pathway pictograph (TSaD [MJH tsadi]) row because this chart is transliteral not transcriptional: for the exception of the "TH" and "SH" transcriptions of the letters ð and ∫ respectively—which demand a transcription due to these two letters not being very well known.

5) The written descriptions in the second column of the Ancient Hebrew pictographs now match the "Picture Descriptions" in my Ancient Hebrew Alphabet Chart: except for the letter TSaD (equivalent to tsadi in MJH) that has the description "destination and pathway" in this (Evolutionary) chart when it only has the description of "destination and path" in the other chart (due to space constraints). The longer description is more accurate.

This is quite a good chart showing some of the most complex (Sacred-Name related!) Ancient Hebrew to English evolutionary letter relationships, such as how:

1) the Ancient Hebrew foot letter named GaM (Modern Jewish Hebrew [MJH] gimel) with the G sound gave rise to (in this order of appearance):

a) the letter shape C which was first used in Middle Greek and had a G sound; but not the (hard) C sound associated with the C shape—this came from the Ancient Hebrew letter KaP and was added by the Classical Romans to the C shape (overriding the Etruscan [and Ancient Hebrew] G sound for the C shape.

b) the letter shape and sound G: which was first used by the Classical Romans.

2) the Ancient Hebrew tent-peg letter named UU [ooh ooh] (MJH waw) with the U [ooh] sound gave rise to (in this order of appearance):

a) the Y shape (first used in Early/Paleo Greek for the U [ooh] sound—since they called this letter wau); but not the Y [eeh] sound—the Y [eeh] sound came from the Ancient Hebrew letter named ID [eed] (MJH yod), and was added to the Y shape by the Etruscans or Classical Romans.

b) the F shape (first used in Early/Paleo Greek for the F sound); but not the F sound—the F sound is more like the P sound than the U [ooh] sound, and there was no F sound in Ancient Hebrew.

c) the V shape (first used in Middle [Ionic] Greek, then in Classical Roman) which once had an U [ooh] sound, but not the V sound. This was added to the V shape later in the Renaissance. There was no V sound in Ancient Hebrew.

d) the U shape and earliest sound of U [ooh]; but not the Modern English short [uh] (as in "but") sound for the U shape.

e) the W shape and sound of W which has always been U [ooh]

3) the Ancient Hebrew hand and arm letter named ID [eed] (MJH yod) with the I [eeh] sound gave rise to (in this order of appearance):

a) the i shape (first used in uncial script by Latin and Greek scribes from the 3rd to the 8th centuries CE); and the early i sound which was [eeh]. and not [ih] as in the word "this", or [ai] in the word "like"—which are some of the other sounds for the letter "i" in Modern English.

b) the j shape (again, first used in uncial script by Latin and Greek scribes from the 3rd to the 8th centuries CE), and the early sound for the shape j which was the [eeh] sound (same as the early i); but not the j sound which was added to the j shape in the Renaissance.

The text at the top of this chart says—with my critical annotation [in square brackets]:

"In early forms of writing such as hieroglyphics, pictorial signs represented whole words or syllables [not in Ancient Hebrew however, the earliest form of writing—each picture-letter was one sound made up of one or two English letters. However, each letter did have a name that was a word and/or syllable, for example the Ancient Hebrew letter name for "dalet" was "DaL". DaL meant door, poor and weak, but "DaLaL" meant hang and brought low (AHLB #1081)]. By around 1500 B.C. the Canaanites [KaNONites (Canaanites) are CHaMites (Hamites) (blacks)], a Semitic-speaking [but not SHaMitic (Semitic) bloodline] people living in ancient Palestine and Syria [because the ISHaRaALites were in slavery in Egypt and normally Palestine and Egypt is theirs], began to use [or, more like, were still using—because NaCH (Noah) (their ancestor) spoke Ancient Hebrew] such signs [in other words, pre-existing Ancient Hebrew—which is also called Proto-Canaanite (only because it is found in Canaan), but also Proto-Semitic)] to [more like, that] stand for individal speech sounds, writing them from right to left. A version of this alphabet was adopted [more like, invented] by their successors [successors in location only] the [post-slavery ISHaRaALites (Israelites) and] Phoenicians [King DUID's (David's) merchant navy], who simplified [more like perverted—using the constellations for inspiration] the forms and added several new ones. Trade with the Phoenicians [more like, between the Greeks and the Phoenicians] brought the alphabet to the early Greeks [mainly ISHaRaALites (Cimmerians) anyway—who were using Ancient Hebrew in all likelihood before that], who reassigned some of the consonant symbols to vowel sounds such as (a), (e), (ē), and (o) [this is a LIE. Ancient Hebrew had five vowel-letters (AL, EA, ID, ON, and UU [aka aleph, he, yod, ayin and waw]) and the Paleo/Early Greeks retained these (as alpha, epsilon, iota, omicron and upsilon), NOT re-assigned these!]. The [Paleo/Early] Greeks also split the Semitic waw into two letters, (wau) (later called digamma. "double gamma," whose sound (w) [ooh] was lost [no—upsilon retained the (w) [ooh] sound until the start of modern times when the sound for upsilon became an [eeh] sound] in classical Greek but whose form [shape] survives as modern F) and u (later as upsilon, "simple u"), the ancestor of modern U, V, W and Y [Y-shape only, but not the Y-sound [eeh]—which came from the Greek letter iota and before that the Ancient Hebrew letter ID [eed] (corresponding to yod)].

In Italy, a western variant of the [Paleo/Early] Greek alphabet was adopted by the Etruscans. Our modern letters derive from the Romans, who adapted the Etruscan script for monumental inscriptions and wrote them from left to right [Middle Greek was written this way also—Middle Greek came after Paleo/Early Greek, but before Classical and Modern Greek]. Because Etruscan writing did not distinguish between the sounds of c and g [not true, they had a back-to-front C for their G sound, and a back-to-front K for their (hard) C sound] Romans created the new letter G by adding a stroke to C [yes, the Romans made theback-to-front Etruscan C shape (once for the G-sound) into the (hard) C shape and sound, and made a new letter shape G for the G sound]. The classical Greek [shapes] Y and Z were added to [Classical Roman] represent the sounds (ϋ) and (z) in words borrowed from Greek. The English alphabet reached its total of 26 letters only after medieval scribes added w (orginally written uu) and Renaissance printers separated the variant pairs of i/j and u/v.

During the Middle Ages, the Roman capitals evolved into uncials [upper case letters written by Latin and Greek scribesfrom the 3rd to the 8th centuries CE] and then to Carolingian miniscules [lower case letters] and Italic cursive script, which are prototypes of many printed and handwritten letters.


Evolution of the Latin Alphabet Chart

Found in Encyclopedia Americana (1996)

This chart shows how the "North Semitic" family of alphabets (North Semitic [Paleo Hebrew] and Phoenician), are similar to the Greek family of alphabets (Early/Archaic/Paleo Greek and Classical/Modern Greek), which are in turn similar to Estruscan, Latin, Roman and Anglo-Irish (English).

This chart is fairly accurate except it has got early (Paleo) Hebrew and Phoenician the wrong way around. Many secular archaeologists would prefer not to accept the Hebrews being associated with mother alphabets. According to the book "Missing Links in Assyrian Tablets" by E Raymond Capt, there is evidence to say that the Phoenicians were red-head Chaldeans who arrived to KaNON (Canaan) during the hey-day (Golden Age) of King DUID's (David's) rule. Alternatively, the Phoenicians were simply King DUID's merchant navy. The Phoenicians used Paleo Hebrew and took it to Greece, and wherever they travelled.

Also the chart implies that early (Paleo/Old/Archaic) Greek came out of early (Paleo/Old) Aramaic. However this is not the case. Paleo Greek and Paleo Aramaic are more like sisterlanguages and not mother-daughter languages. They are both separate offshoots from Pleo Hebrew.

This chart written by a fluent speaker of Syriac and shows the alphabet IEUESHUO used (Square Estrangelo Aramaic - No 4), amongst other (mainly Aramaic) alphabets.

These are
1. Cuneiform (B.C.)
2. Phoenician (B.C.)
3. Ancient Aramaic (B.C.) (also called paleo or old Aramaic)
4. Square Estrangelo Aramaic (B.C. & A.D.) *
5. Estrangelo Aramaic (A.D.)
6. Eastern Syriac (A.D.)
7. Western Syriac (A.D.)

It is amazing to look at the possible writing of our MaSHICH, IEUESHUO.

However, it is a misleading chart in some respects. This is because it implies that Ancient Aramaic came from Phoenician, which in turn came from Cuneiform. In fact, much more likely, Cuneiform came out of Ancient Hebrew (the language Adam and CHUE (Eve) spoke), and did not evolve into Phoenician. The Phoenician came from Paleo Hebrew, which came from Ancient Hebrew - along a separate branch. The Ancient Aramaic also shot off from Paleo Hebrew. Therefore Paleo Aramaic and Phoenician are more like sister alphabets.

From Paleo Aramaic onwards (3 to 7) I would say that the order of the chart is correct. However it emits Elephantine Aramaic (also called Egyptian Cursive, or Middle Hebrew[by Jeff Benner]) . (This alphabet is shown on the table called "Table of Alphabets" [the last image of this article]). Modern Hebrew (square script) also came out of Elephantine Aramaic. Elephantine Aramaic is called Elephantine because it was found in scripts at a place called Elephantine, Egypt.

Here is more information on the different types of Aramaic






Table of Alphabets

by M. Lidzbarksi, from Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar, edited by E. Kautzsch and A. E Cowley (Oxford, 1910).

This table shows (from left to right)

Old Hebrew - (Paleo Hebrew)

Samaritan - which came out of Paleo Hebrew

Old Aramaic - (Paleo Aramaic) - which also came out of Paleo Hebrew; and Egyptian Cursive Aramaic (under the Old Aramaic heading) - also called Elephantine Aramaic. It is shown under the Paleo Aramaic heading, but is usually made separate to Paleo Aramaic by other alphabetologists

Aramaic Hebrew - also called Modern Hebrew or Modern Jewish Hebrew - this is the alphabet used by the IEUDIM (Jews) over approximately the last 2000 years. It is only called Aramaic because it came from Paleo Aramaic. It is part of the Aramaic Family of languages that also includesSyriac Aramaic and Arabic.

This incredible table includes various Arabic, Ethiopian, classical European and Aramaic alphabets as well as some lesser known paleo-European alphabets like Vinca, Azilian, and Glozelian. The author says these lesser known alphabets pre-date proto-Sinaitic (ancient Hebrew), but they are more likely to be early alphabets of the 10 lost tribes of ISHaRaAL who migrated to Europe from Assyria (these alphabets closelyresemble Runic). Hence they are probably only about 2500 years old.
