RE: why does everybody do this with the alphabet
I have no idea what you are talking about when you say that Japan starts its "alphabet" with "love". Citation please?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: why does everybody do this with the alphabet
If you're using hiragana instead of the traditional kanji, the first two characters happen to "spell" love.

Being a pretty common character, most people just use kanji.

Ah I gotta hunt down an alphabet song now! I knew it would be tough to get across in text.

RE: why does everybody do this with the alphabet
Yes, love in Japanese is pronounced ai, but it has nothing to do with the Hiragana/Katakana syllabaries (they're not alphabets). These have no meaning, they're only sets of sounds. あい does not mean love, it doesn't mean anything. Tongue

Plus, do you know how many words there are in Japanese that can be read as "ai"? Big Grin

I couldn't resist.

Re: why does everybody do this with the alphabet
I still occasionally catch myself using "zed." But I have yet to spell a word with an elleminnopee.

Yep
Its a song we all learned as children.

If this really bothers you, you've too much time on your hands.
