An alphabet is a standard set of letters that is used to write one or more languages based upon the general principle that the letters represent phonemes (basic significant sounds) of the spoken language. This is in contrast to other types of writing systems, such as syllabaries (in which each character represents a syllable) and logographies (in which each character represents a word, morpheme, or semantic unit).

The Proto-Canaanite script, later known as the Phoenician alphabet, is the first fully phonemic script. Thus the Phoenician alphabet is considered to be the first alphabet. The Phoenician alphabet is the ancestor of most modern alphabets, including Arabic, Greek, Latin, Cyrillic, Hebrew, and possibly Brahmic.12 Under a terminological distinction promoted by Peter T. Daniels, an "alphabet" is a script that represents both vowels and consonants as letters equally. In this narrow sense of the word the first "true" alphabet was the Greek alphabet,34 which was developed on the basis of the earlier Phoenician alphabet. In other alphabetic scripts such as the original Phoenician, Hebrew or Arabic, letters predominantly or exclusively represent consonants; such a script is also called an abjad. A third type, called abugida or alphasyllabary, is one where vowels are shown by diacritics or modifications of consonantal base letters, as in Devanagari and other South Asian scripts. The Khmer alphabet (for Cambodian) is the longest, with 74 letters.5

The phenomenon where a significant population of nerds begin sweating at a conference with an intensity so strong that the heat from the room evaporates the nerdy sweat and condensates the abominable liquid at the roof of the conference, resulting in a roof showering the conference goers with an odoriferous acid rain.

Keenan is an interesting and intriguing guy despite his apparent boring life. He has a sense of humor so bad that it’s good and if he has a secret, he’ll build it up as high as he can, then never tell you. Keenan always has some kind of ache or pain no matter how youthful he is and he basically coined the name “old man”. He some how is able to be simultaneously flamboyant and social while being painfully awkward and anxious. A Keenan is a super nerdy, dorky, loser, but it’s what adds to his shitty, almost non-existant charm. If you slip up even once in front of a Keenan you’ll be left teased forever and you can never live it down. Overall, Keenans are an 8/10; minus one point for the secrets, minus another for the shitty nicknames you’ll get stuck with.
