I am trying to locate "analog" alphabets in various languages.
By "analog", I mean that the shape of the letter looks like something, and that something has a name which starts by the same sound.
For example S and a snake. b and bat and balls. M and Mountains.
The idea is to speed up the teaching of the alphabet by triggering some mnemotechnic association in a child's mind.
I have found a couple of examples in english such as a "Curious George" book and a Rudyard Kipling short story.
I was wondering if some forum members remember running across other examples and can give a reference.
