What scripts are written from left to right?
Most of the modern languages in Europe, North America, South America, India and Southeast Asia are written from left to right. These languages feature Latin, Modern Greek, Cyrillic, Indic and Southeast Asian alphabet and are therefore written from left to right. The reason for these languages being read and written in this direction is not well known, but some prominent theories point at the medium that was used to represent these words in written form. Languages that developed their scripts after papermaking industry emerged in China around 100 BC adopted a left-to-right script because of the convenience of this direction from a motor point of view. Writing from right to left on a piece of paper would cause the ink to smudge because most individuals are right-handed.
Hebrew is one of the languages written from right to left.
