    schema:reviewBody ""This book is concerned with writing systems in a multi-cultural context. The field of English as a second language is well researched and documented, but the equally important subject of how to acquire the Latin alphabet as a second writing system, or how to alter from any particular writing system to another, has seldom been considered. An analytical approach to this subject is provided, starting with a system for comparing the rules of writing systems and leading to practical help for teachers and students. Examples of many of the world's writing systems are used to pinpoint areas of possible difficulty, and the subject is expanded to cross-cultural typography and computers." "This is a book for language teachers and students around the world, from the primary school to the university level. Also important to anyone interested in handwriting, or cross-cultural issues in the widest sense."--BOOK JACKET." ;
