Our Alphabet is a take on the Roman Alphabet. The Roman Alphabet was only in what we call capital letters so you could say they wrote in “ALL CAPS”. Also, the Roman alphabet didn’t have letters like J,U and W. I stood in for J, V stood in for U and W wasn’t a sound the Romans had in Latin. The letters X, Y and Z were only used to write Greek Words. The ancient Roman alphabet could be written right to left as well as left to right like our own! The Roman alphabet came from the Etruscan alphabet. The Phonecian alphabet shaped both Latin and Greek alphabet.
