Wolfram Language

Visualize Data about Alphabets and Writing Scripts

In addition to data on languages, the Wolfram Language has separate entities for alphabets and writing systems. "WritingScript" entities offer detailed data about standardized codes and other technical details associated with scripts and character sets used to write human languages, while "Alphabet" entities return the specific sets of characters used in a given language.

For example, consider "Latin", which is represented as both an alphabet and a writing script (as well as a language).

The properties returned by each type are quite distinct.

You can use an implicit EntityClass to find other writing scripts that share certain characteristics with the Latin script.

You can also find other alphabets that make use of Latin script.

From this list, generate a word cloud of characters weighted by the number of alphabets they appear in.
