Alphabets, etc.

I'm curious....

How many different alphabets (also including abjads/syllabaries/etc. but excluding character-based writing such as kanji) can you read? (just be able to read out phonetically, regardless of whether or not you know what the words themselves mean)

How long did it take you to learn them?

Are you currently learning any new ones?

What would you consider to be the easiest alphabet? Hardest?

(Though if you do also read kanji/hanzi/etc., feel free also to mention how much you know/how long it took you to learn, but I'm primarily interested in how long it takes people to learn alphabets/abjads/etc.).

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning

    I am having trouble understanding what "グズグズ" means in this sentence: あのグズグズだった頃の俺の心がお前となぁなぁになる事をまだ許していないのは確かだ Could someone explain?
