08. How is English different from Hebrew?

There are several distinct differences between Hebrew and English:
  1. Modern Hebrew letters developed from the ancient Paleo Hebrew letters and are visually quite different from English letters.
  2. Hebrew letters have no upper and lower case and five of the Hebrew letters have a different form when they appear at the end of a word. On the other hand, each English letter has an upper and lower case form that does not change depending on their placement in a word.
  3. Hebrew uses an abjad writing system which simply means there are only consonant symbols and the reader is left to supply the appropriate vowel sound.
  4. Hebrew is read from right to left while English is left to right.
