The Noise Alphabet

This is a very simple game that I did for my son to help him understand letter pronunciation in portuguese (our mother tongue). The relationship between alphabet symbols and it’s corresponding sounds are completely arbitrary, that’s why it’s possible to use the same alphabet to many languages. This is difficult to understand for a child, because their knowledge is primarly constituted by analogies.

I recorded with my own voice some joking sounds about each word for him and published on Usabilidoido for other parents to use. Many teachers and children appreciated the idea, but I never finished the missing letters because my son learnt them very fast by creating his own audio analogies.
