Will emoji replace written language, says the occasional overwrought clickbait headline? Well, no. It works the OTHER way.

Well, Paleo-Semitic, anyway. That's basically my interpretation of the Phoenician alphabet, Hebrew version.

That third one, for instance -- Hebrew bases its gimmel on a picture of a camel, but the Phoenician gimel was probably based on a throwing stick. If I'd found a boomerang emoji, I would have used that. And nun had been based on a snake in Proto-Canaanite, but was redone as a fish. And some of those were a bit further out; I couldn't find a "window" emoji, and went for a cinema, instead. Barber pole instead of support column, syringe instead of needle. Other things like that.

So, at the levels of approximation and abstraction I'm doing, I can't really say that I'm doing the Hebrew alphabet in particular. It's just me picking up emoji that match up a bit to the original emoji that led to ninety percent of all other alphabets that ever existed.

I like that "barber" is a completely arbitrary (though venerable) symbol having no direct connection to scissors, razors, or hair.

There's something to say here about the way the Latin alphabet is becoming part of the Chinese writing system, as well.
