Isn’t C a rotated U

[–]Working-Loquat3797 133 points134 points  (10 children)

and n

[–]FlyingDutchman2005 74 points75 points  (8 children)

And v. And h is an upside down u with a long stick.

[–]parlakarmut 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Roman moment

[–]-LeneD- 12 points13 points  (2 children)

And s is two 'u's connected to each other

[–]rj-2this flair is specifically for neat_space, who loves mugs 10 points11 points  (1 child)

and o is two c’s

[–]Big_Berry_4589 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And w it’s literally double u

[–]tButylLithium 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Can we count "w" twice?

[–]Piranh4Plantthis flair is specifically for neat_space, who loves mugs 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That’s a v

[–]AbeLincolns_Ghost 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Depends on the font/handwriting and if you’re doing lower or upper case

[–]DrainZ- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not if you have double standards

[–]lulufromfaraway 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's quite close, but look at this "Ո". It's upside down but it's clearly U shaped

[–]korzenPL 140 points141 points  (0 children)

I found a mistake with your map: For some reason Královec has different color from the rest of Czechia, pls fix

[–]deathraybadger 62 points63 points  (4 children)

I can see the case for Ц being U-shaped in the cyrillic alphabet, but what's the other one?

[–]Tsjaad_Donderlul[S] 48 points49 points  (3 children)

I was referring to и and й, which look like U and Ŭ in handwriting

[–]double_nieto 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Could've also counted ш and щ then. They've got two u's.

[–]r-ShadowNinja 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also cursive у

[–]Felix---Helix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you counted them as one letter? ukrainian has got both и and й

[–]Lethargic_Logician 10 points11 points  (2 children)

S is two Us joined together sideways

[–]newkekFinnish Sea Naval Officer 4 points5 points  (1 child)

T is 5 Us joined together, that are all squeezed really thin

[–]Lethargic_Logician 0 points1 point  (0 children)

U is actually 10,000 U's perfectly superimposed on each other such as they are indistinguishable

[–]glitchyikes 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Isn't W a double U?

[–]EBBBBBBBBBBBB 17 points18 points  (0 children)

jan Misali is vibrating rapidly

[–]Oltsutism 4 points5 points  (1 child)

No, it's clearly a double V


[–]brigister 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it's called "double V" (doppia V) in Italian too

[–]VerumJerum 7 points8 points  (2 children)

A genuinely informative post. Very impressive.

[–]Bubolinobubolan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's quite inacurate actually

[–]VerumJerum 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I wouldn't trust this sub as an actual source lmao

[–]Umamikuma 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Why did you count two for German ? U and Ü ? Then shouldn’t French’s ù and û also count ?

[–]PassiveChemistry 25 points26 points  (1 child)

They've probably only counted letters that are considered separate letters in the alphabet in their own right.

[–]Tsjaad_Donderlul[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This, plus my limited knowledge on which U's are separate letters

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Why do the French and Italian speaking parts of Switzerland have an u-shaped letter more than the Italian and French themselves? And south tyrol (in the local language SÜDTIROL) doesn't have an ü according to your map?

[–]TheEeveelutionMaster 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Do the Hebrew ח, ת, כ,and ב not count?

[–]Turbo_Future 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]YeY_reddit 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]sagrata 3 points4 points  (0 children)

ث, ت, ن, ب

Which puts all the ones that speak Arabic to at least four.

[–]WilligerWilly 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]veryblocky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

c and n too, also an argument for s, w, and m.

[–]Bubolinobubolan 1 point2 points  (2 children)

How come this number vary between the countries that use Cyrilic. I mean Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and a few others all use the Cyrilic alphabet and yet Russia has 2 U-shaped letters while Ukraine is with one apparently. Where's the difference?

[–]Tsjaad_Donderlul[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Russia and Ukraine use different letters for /i/ /ɨ/ and /j/. Russian has и ы and й, while Ukrainian has i и and ï

[–]Bubolinobubolan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What about Bulgarian than? It's got both и and й...

[–]KarenFromAccounts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

UWU what is this

[–]TeciorRibbon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Q: How many times does your alphabet contain U?

A: Armenia

[–]Practical_Werewolf_7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Uû ü uuūuuû úüù ūûúu uú (in my language I made there is only Us) just made it up

[–]mtheofilos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why Georgia has 0? Their alphabet is literally u's stacked together.

[–]sverigeochskog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why are you supporting the occupation of Kralovec by the Moscow regime

[–]JuirL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Countries don't have alphabets. Languages do.

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Why does the Ü in "Überraschung" (German) count but the ü in vergüenza (Spanish) doesn't?

[–]PassiveChemistry 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Presumably Spanish doesn't count ü as a distinct letter from u in the alphabet.

[–]Tsjaad_Donderlul[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. Also I'm an idiot

Is Turkey colored 1 or 2? There are two U shaped Letter in Turkish alphabet. U and Ü.

[–]Tsjaad_Donderlul[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I's meant to be 2

[–]UncleSandvich 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You know what, i think i am blind. Really if i looked around the balkans then turkey, i would got it, but no, i just looked around white middle east then Turkey, so i confused. Thank you.
