A syllabary is a form of writing system, in which a letter represents a syllable, rather than a sound. Syllabaries were common in ancient days, but the alphabet, which is less complicated and easier to learn and write, quickly replaced most syllabaries. However, the Japanese and Cherokee languages still use syllabaries.
