This is a list of the languages featured on Omniglot arranged
by the writing systems with which they are written. This is not an exhaustive
list of all the languages written with each writing system, but mainly the ones
that appear on Omniglot.
The most widely used writing systems are the Latin,
Cyrillic and Arabic alphabets. An index of all the languages of all the languages
featured on this site is available in the language index.
Some languages have been written with a number of different writing
systems over the years. For example, in Central Asia many languages were
originally written with the Arabic alphabet, then switched to the Latin alphabet
during the 1920s, then to the Cyrillic alphabet during the 1930s or 1940s.
Some of them switched back to the Latin alphabet during the 1990s or
in the early 21st century.
