    Fun fact : in english, the 3 letters C are pronounced in 3 different manner in "Pacific ocean"

    Universal: "Q sounds like K, C sounds like K, but sometimes it sounds like S, Z sounds like S, but also can sound like Z. We need to do something with it."
    French: "NO!"
    Meanwhile, English with identical stuff: *heavy sweating*

      And languages are not monolithic, there are sometimes drastic changes due to wars but for the most part it's a gradient influenced by geography, migration, economics. Modern Academic French, the last major reform, only dates back to 1835 when most local patois were harmonized (suppressed) so it's definitely not older than Modern English which dates back to the 16th-17th centuries.

      @Arnold James By age I mean similar to how each species is as old as the others, they all share the same origin. Same with most alphabets, you can trace their evolution all the way back to Sanskrit. Even the Greek and Roman alphabets, it's 2 branches of the same tree.

      @Soken50 I guess I can see how English is confusing. Yeah, I haven’t looked into the whole gender thing yet either.
      I’m not quite sure what you mean for the age of languages thing. But I do know that not all languages are the same age. Yes, a lot of modern ones have roots in a common older language or two, however they are not all the same age. And there are certain groups of languages that are completely different from others. For example, Latin is younger than Ancient Greek. And they are in two totally different categories. Latin is the first language to use letters of its kind. Greek, while it is unique in and of itself, has many similar type letters to other languages. (Probably because the Greeks loved to adapt foreign ideas.) Languages similar to Arabic and Hebrew.
      Also, English is a rather young language. At least, the English we speak today is. It’s a melting pot of a lot of European languages and is very evolved in the way of its root language, Old English, which is evolved from Old Norse. French was probably around when Old Norse was, or at least when it was fading out and it’s nearest tribal descendent languages were on the rise. French is born out of Latin and probably some combination of Greek and an Old Nordic type language. However, Old English and King James English are born from a way more diversified and evolved mix of Old Nordic languages combined with Latin. French is a lot older than the English we know and love today, as it had more time to mix with Latin and has not changed nearly as much as English has in more recent centuries. But since English has had so many different roots and factors, it is more plausible that it would have been more commonly learned in other countries as a secondary language. A broader group of people would have shown more interest in learning it, thus making it the choice for a Universal language.
      I’m not trying to be rude here, just stating what I’ve learned via history.

      @Arnold James English is equally as confusing, we (French) have a few exceptions to every rule but we have a lot of rules, what tipped the scales was the number of English speaking countries Vs French speaking ones.
      I don't know who thought it was a good idea to gender nouns or why, haven't looked into it myself.
      As for the age of languages, they all come from the same proto-languages with different mixing and matching, they're equally old.

      An example of H doing something in Italian is the K sound with an i or e, by using the letter C, then H, than I or e. Chi is pronounced like key, Ci is pronounced like the Che in cheese, H has no sound on its own but changes pronunciations around it

    I love how Spanish noticed this problem 300 years ago and their Real Academia fixed it making each letter having their unique sound to standarize their written language with the spoken language. Unlike French which evolved their spoken language with the time but still write like they would speak 800 years ago.

    Korean alphabets have no such problem which makes it very easy to learn especially for foreigners. Plus, you can intuitively know how each alphabets sounds because similar shaped letters have also similar sound. For example, d and t sounds are similar but the shapes have nothing in common on the other hand in Korean, ㄷ(d)and ㅌ(t) comes in similar shapes. Also ㄱ(g),ㅋ(k)/ㅁ(m),ㅂ(b),ㅍ(p)

      Und nein, es "ist nicht Dein Problem", ob ich irgend etwas lese oder nicht.
      Aber ich hab es nicht aus Faulheit nicht getan, sondern wie gesagt, weil mir das ganze Gespräch unsachlich, inkonsistent und ergo nicht zielführend erschien.

      @Frogenius W. Es ist nicht mein Problem, dass du zu faul zum Lesen eines Textes bist, in dem man dir erklärt, dass du offensichtlich etwas falsch gelesen bzw. falsch verstanden hast & deine persönliche Meinung nicht aussagekräftig ist, wenn's wissenschaftliche Studien dazu gibt. Was du findest, und was die Wirklichkeit ist, sind zwei Dinge. Die Komplexität einer Sprache ist keine Meinung, sondern lässt sich an bestimmten Faktoren festmachen. Du sprichst seit Jahren Deutsch, natürlich findest du es logischer als Französisch, weil's eben nicht deine Muttersprache ist.
      Ich will mich nicht profilieren, ich wollte lediglich deine falsche Aussage klarstellen. Dass du zu faul zum Lesen bist & mich deswegen nicht verstehst oder verstehen willst, ist nicht mein Problem. Ich hab dir lediglich klarmachen wollen, dass ich keinen Bullshit erzähle, du hingegen schon (mit deiner ersten Aussage). In dem Sinne: Hab noch nen schönen Tag (falls du überhaupt so weit gelesen hast. Oh nein, Text!).

      @Indra Vṛtrahan I’d argue ch sounds like tsh.
      Tshatter, tsheese, tshosen, tshalk, tsheers, tshief, tshart, tshurtsh
      And if you disagree, then try saying sweachirt instead of sweatshirt. Or salchaker. I think it works. Obviously we’re being highly hypothetical here.
      Edit: the ipa for ch is tʃ.

      @Cristina Pirvulescu Nope. The letters are arranged by sound from throat to mouth. Plus they vowel for every possible sound and are attached perticular alphabet so it is easy to read if you memorize all letters. Pronounciation is very easy and alphabets are structured well.

    Our alphabet has 36 letters and all of them make different sounds. In other languages the C makes either the 'K' sound or the 'S' sound. In Albania we don't have that.
    (this means we read a text just like it's written and not like for ex. 'stop' and 'eggs' where the S makes 2 different sounds)
    1 letter= 1 sound
