Written languages vary widely in their characteristic, but some broad categories can be described.
The minimal unit, or building block, of any written system is the grapheme. Many writing system reflect the phonological properties of the oral language they encode and are thus sound-based. A sound-based writing system that uses individual symbols, or letters, to represent the phoneme of a language is alphabetic. An ideal alphabetic system would include a one-to-one correspondence between phonemes in the language and the symbol used to represent them and enough different letters to represent all the phonemes
Written English system is primarily an alphabetic system, although it is not completely regular in its representation and has many different ways to spell one phoneme. If it were, there would be no point in having spelling bees, because all words would be spelled just as they sound.
