I learned the other day that our alphabet is formed from pictographs, just as Chinese characters were. That's just cool.

What else could it be formed from? Imagine you need some signs for SOUNDS. The simplest way is to take the 'most common' words that start with those sounds (exactly as the alphabet is learned in kindergarten, you know: A for Apple and so) and just 'picture them'. )))
No, really, where did you think it came from?
