Predator Writing/Glyphs/Alphabet

I was rewatching the movies recently and was wondering if a true definition of predator symbols and numbers has ever been given.

Wouldn't the first pic you posted be numeric instead of alphabetic? Seeing as how it's used as a countdown device in the first film. Or how about the glyphs from AVP. Man I wish there was a concrete understanding of it all. I'm just trying to get a better grasp of the language use. Found myself very curious all of a sudden.

The first image above is the alphabet as it corresponds with English, just as it shows. I also made an icon package a few years ago based on it shown below. I'm not sure what the 2nd set of symbols stand for as there are 40 characters, but they are seen in the newer films.

Seriously though, it is a strange thing for any alphabet to have corresponding letters to each of our letters in our alphabet unless they are also of West Germanic origin. Most languages on earth do not have corresponding alphabets that relate directly to English unless they have the same root origin (French, Spanish, etc). Japanese has over 40 characters in each of two different alphabets and they use Kanji (Chinese) characters also, in which there are thousands of symbols. Whoever put the Yautja alphabet into corresponding letters in English, did so in order to make a font, which can be found in a download HERE
