Writing Systems: A Linguistic Approach
Krysta Dudar, linguist and speech pathologist

Krysta Dudar

Come and discover the history of writing systems, the difference between alphabets and abjads, the silliness of syllabaries, and the magic of morphograms! We we will explore these subjects by looking at some examples of different writing systems from languages such as Japanese, Chinese, Cree, Hebrew, Arabic… and more! Did I forget to mention Korean? Oh yes. You’ve already learned everything you need to know about your ABCs in kindergarten, and now it’s time to learn so many more things you’ll never need to know about them! Why? Because learning is fun.
