In the 1820s, an American Indian named Sequoyah brought literacy to the Cherokee using the English alphabet-but he didn't know which letters made which sounds. The result was quite a jumble compared to modern English, but oddly enough it caught on locally and in Liberia. Take a trip to northern New York and unlearn everything you know about the alphabet.
