That's pretty cool looking. But2 questions:

1) Is it read left-to-right or right-to-left?
2) I don't know Hebrew, so what would be equivalent to "a," "b," ect...?

Bear in mind the vowels are mostly unwritten, but in my system if you knew English you just guess the vowels (and mostly in English you would put a "schwa" - that "uh" sound.

Note: look at the link. The handwriting of Hebrew (and Yiddish, Ladino, etc.) is f~u~n~k~y!

PS. I use TAV for "th" (both voiced and unvoiced) and I also don't know Hebrew, just "shalom, ma nishma?" and "ani rotzeh bagelim" and "ma ata medaber anglit?".. not much else :o

That was a little more complicated than I thought it would be. Maybe it's because I'm just not used to Hebrew. If the alphabet was going to change, and it was up to me, I would stick with the Cyrillic.

It's definitely because you don't know the alefbet, it would be very easy if you knew it. I barely know Cyrillic so it's hard for me to decipher!

Frankly, when I saw the text, I had an impression it was written in Kazakh. :)

When I read that text I realized what "смесь французского с нижегородским" was. ;-)

Wow! :shock: I really had a hard time reading that, and even when I read some words a few times, I still can't really guess them by themselves, but thanks to the context... "с пти тэкст" really lacks vowels, it doesn't seem possible to pronounce... :lol: And does "и~си" mean "ainsi"? :?
