The Arabic alphabet is similar to the Hebrew alphabet, in that it is considered a "defective" script. This refers to the fact that short vowels are not written in most books and periodicals, so one must infer these vowels from context. This situation is ameliorated by the fact that semitic languages put much of their meaning in consonants and long vowels, which are written.

SATTS, the Standard Arabic Technical Transliteration System, is a US military standard mapping of Arabic letters to the Latin alphabet.

The Quran is written using the Arabic alphabet. There are several languages that use the Arabic alphabet, including Urdu.
