In the wider sense, an alphabet is a script that is segmental at the phoneme level—that is, it has separate glyphs for individual sounds and not for larger units such as syllables or words. In the narrower sense, some scholars distinguish "true" alphabets from two other types of segmental script, abjads and abugidas.
There is no difference!
This is not an easy question to answer because it depends on your point of view. Historically the 'crest' was usually the charge the lion, sword, crescent or other heraldic device that was placed above the heraldic shield. When it was displayed on its own it often became known as the 'family crest'.
A Coat of Arms has historically referred to the full 'Achievement', meaning the shield, side-ribbons mantlethe helmet, and the crest above it. However this distinction has been lost over the centuries and today it is quite common for people to refer to the shield as the 'family crest' or 'coat of arms' as one and the same thing.
It is not uncommon for words and phrases to have their meaning altered over time depending on their usage. New words and phrases are created all the time while existing words and phrases have their meanings altered.
Simply put, if enough people regard a 'family crest' and a 'coat of arms' as the same thing then they are the same thing.
Now there are some with a different viewpoint who would not be at all happy with this assertion and would be contemptuous of any attempt to suggest that a Family Crest and a Coat of Arms are the same thing, despite the vast majority of people regarding them as the same.
Our view is that people themselves you and me and everyone else decide on the actual meaning of a word of phrase and we do so by our usage.
Aware as we are of the historical difference between a Crest and a Coat of Arms we have no problem regarding them as being the same thing. Because that is the meaning the vast majority of people have assigned to them and for centuries. The metamorphosis of words and phrases is not something that is confined to Heraldry.
No less than the Oxford Dictionary has changed the definition of the word 'literally' to include its use as an emphasis rather than its actual original meaning.
So the next time you hear someone say 'We were literally killing ourselves laughing' there is no need to correct them, or worry that they have died. They are not literally dead. The word 'cute' originally meant 'keenly perceptive and shrewd', now it means 'pretty' or 'charming'.
The word 'nice' originally meant 'ignorant'. The word 'decimate' originally meant 'to kill one in ten', now it means 'to destroy everything'. The word 'Google' did not even exist until quite recently, same with 'Googled'. Now it is part of everyday conversation.Whether you're writing a letter to a Spanish-speaking friend or preparing a formal business letter, the greetings and salutations in this lesson can help give your .

An alphabet is a standard set of letters (basic written symbols or graphemes) that represent the phonemes (basic significant sounds) of any spoken language it is used to write.
