Modern Alphabets

Many languages that have only recently been written down are written in the alphabet prevalent in the region — even so, adaptations often have to be made to account for sounds that are not represented in those alphabets. Due to other factors, such as language groups across national boundaries, some languages must be presented in two alphabets to reach all readers, and in the case of the Tai Dam in Vietnam, three alphabets are needed.
