Hieroglyph is derived from the ancient Greek word which means sacred writing.
The Alibata is the ancient alphabet of the pre-colonial Filipinos. I have no idea why this isn’t being taught to students. It’s a really interesting way of writing. My next goal is to be able to learn this and write full sentences using the Alibata.
For starters, I have learned that if you want the consonant to be read with an -A, leave the character alone. If with an -E or -I place a dot on top. And if you wish to use it with an -O or -U, place the dot below. If the letter needs to stand alone, add a plus sign below.
The period of each sentence is simply an X at the end.
Kudos to our ancestors for coming up with this. If you are a Filipino, I encourage you to learn this as well. The only way to preserve our culture is to remember it x
