Features, Office A few weeks ago, we talked about how the rise of computing, a field wherein English is the primary language, is affecting smaller languages, and more specifically, the Dutch language (because that's my native tongue). Of course, it's not just the smaller languages that are affected - English, too, experiences the pressure.

Hebrew has final forms for k/ch, ts, m, n, p/f. That's about a quarter of its alphabet.
I don't see the morphological interaction there, perhaps others do. Both -im and -in are plural endings, so that is convenient.
There are still hieroglyphs visible in our own Latin alphabet, by the way. ;)
