1. The mechanism of Egyptian and Phoenician script (writing)
M
echanisms of Phoenician and Egyptian(hieroglyphics) writing system are same, butentirely different from Greek. In Phoenician andEgypt writing system (script):1) We write from right to left (in Greek fromleft to right)2) There are letters only for the consonants:p, v, f…., for long vowels (the case of two: aa,oo, ii…) and for groups: x, b, d, g = ks, mp, nt,γκ.
Long vowels
are the case of two aa, uu, ii…after from a consonant, e.g.: Abr-aa-m, Dan-ii-l,m-uu-mer, Ααρών, διίσταμαι, πλέετε…
Sort vowels
are the case of 5 vowels: α, ε,ο, ι, ου. In script there is small signs for eachvowel, that putted on or down of consonant thathave vowel, but usually omitted.
2. The Phoenician alphabet
In Phoenician alphabet there are 22 letters.The Phoenician and Egyptian letters: Beth,Gimel, Daleth = two sounds of consonants, likeLatin letters: mp/b, nk/g, nt/d and different fromGreek letters B, Γ, Δ = V, GH (like you), DH(like those, not as thing) = one sound of consonants.The Phoenician and Egyptian letters aleph,ayin, yod = two sounds: αα, oo/ουου, ii, as inwords: Abr-aa-m, Dan-ii-l, m-uu-mer, Αα-ρών,δ-ιίσταμαι… and different from Greek a, o, u, i.Long and sort vowels thereare not in Greek script. TheGreek letters α, ο, ου, ι = onesoundThe Phoenician and theEgypt script had letters only forthe consonants (= b, d, g, p, v,f, t, th, c, h, m, n, l, r, s, z), forlong vowels (aleph = aa, ayin =uu, yod = ii) and for groups: X= ks, d = nt, b = mp, g = gk.Here there are not letters for thesimple vowel: α, ε, ο, ι, ου and
EGYPTIAN ALPHABET( HIEROGLYPHICS)
Egyptians letters are fromideograms (have schema oanimals, things etc), but havephonetic pronunciation. Theabove hieroglyphics are phoneticwriting, not ideographic.
PHOENICIAN ALPHABET
 
for the homophone letters: ω & o, η & υ & ι & οι & ει & υι, ε & αι...The Greek script in one hand has letters for all phthongs (for all sound of words, forall consonants and for all vowels) and in other hand has (there are) homophone vowelsletters: O & , H & Y & I… by which we suggest (using them by grammatical rules) theetymology (part of speech, gender, number etc) of words or distinguishing thehomophone words, e.g.:
 λίρα & λύρα, καλό & καλώ...καλό (with –o = good, adjective) & καλώ (= I cal, verb)
