An abjad is a type of writing system in which each symbol or glyph stands for a consonant, leaving the reader to supply the appropriate vowel. So-called impure abjads do represent vowels, either with optional diacritics, a limited number of distinct vowel glyphs, or both; the name abjad is based on the Arabic alphabet's first four letters—a, b, j, d—to replace the common terms "consonantary" or "consonantal alphabet" to refer to the family of scripts called West Semitic. The name "abjad" is derived from pronouncing the first letters of the Arabic alphabet order in the original order; the ordering of Arabic letters used to match that of the older Hebrew and Semitic alphabets: aleph, gimel, dalet. According to the formulations of Peter T. Daniels, abjads differ from alphabets in that only consonants, not vowels, are represented among the basic graphemes. Abjads differ from abugidas, another category defined by Daniels, in that in abjads, the vowel sound is implied by phonology, where vowel marks exist for the system, such as nikkud for Hebrew and ḥarakāt for Arabic, their use is optional and not the dominant form.

Abugidas mark a minor attachment to the letter, or a standalone glyph. Some abugidas use a special symbol to suppress the inherent vowel so that the consonant alone can be properly represented. In a syllabary, a grapheme denotes a complete syllable, that is, either a lone vowel sound or a combination of a vowel sound with one or more consonant sounds; the antagonism of abjad versus alphabet, as it was formulated by Daniels, has been rejected by some other scholars because abjad is used as a term not only for the Arabic numeral system but, most important in terms of historical grammatology as term for the alphabetic device of ancient Northwest Semitic scripts in opposition to the'south Arabian' order. This caused fatal effects on terminology in general and in Semitic philology, it suggests that consonantal alphabets, in opposition to, for instance, the Greek alphabet, were not yet true alphabets and not yet complete, lacking something important to be a working script system. It has been objected that, as a set of letters, an alphabet is not the mirror of what should be there in a language from a phonological point of view.

The first abjad to gain widespread usage was the Phoenician abjad. Unlike other contemporary scripts, such as cuneiform and Egyptian hieroglyphs, the Phoenician script consisted of only a few dozen symbols; this made the script easy to learn, seafaring Phoenician merchants took the script throughout the then-known world. The Phoenician abjad was a radical simplification of phonetic writing, since hieroglyphics required the writer to pick a hieroglyph starting with the same sound that the writer wanted to write in order to write phonetically, much as man'yōgana was used to represent Japanese phonetically before the invention of kana. Phoenician gave rise to a number of new writing systems, including the Greek alphabet and Aramaic, a used abjad; the Greek alphabet evolved into the modern western alphabets, such as Latin and Cyrillic, while Aramaic became the ancestor of many modern abjads and abugidas of Asia. Impure abjads have characters for optional vowel diacritics, or both; the term pure abjad refers to scripts lacking in vowel indicators.

However, most modern abjads, such as Arabic, Hebrew and Pahlavi, are "impure" abjads – that is, they contain symbols for some of the vowel phonemes, although the said non-diacritic vowel letters are used to write certain consonants approximants that sound similar to long vowels. A "pure" abjad is exemplified by early forms of ancient Phoenician, though at some point it and most of the contemporary Semitic abjads had begun to overload a few of the consonant symbols with a secondary function as vowel markers, called matres lectionis; this practice was at first rare and limited in scope but became common and more developed in times. In the 9th century BC the Greeks adapted the Phoenician script for use in their own language; the phonetic structure of the Greek language created too many ambiguities when vowels went unrepresented, so the script was modified. They did not need letters for the guttural sounds represented by aleph, he, heth or ayin, so these symbols were assigned vocalic values; the letters waw and yod were adapted into vowel signs.

The major innovation of Greek was to dedicate these symbols and unambiguously to vowel sounds that could be combined arbitrarily with consonants. Abugidas developed along a different route; the basic consonantal symbol was considered to have an inherent "a" vowel sound. Hooks or short lines attached to various parts of the basic letter modify the vowel. In this way, the South Arabian alphabet evolved into the Ge'ez alphabet between the 5th century BC and the 5th century AD. Around the 3rd century BC, the Brāhmī script developed; the other major family of abugidas, Canadian Aboriginal syllabics, was developed in the 1840s by missionary and linguist James Evans for the Cree and Ojibwe languages. Evans used features of Devanagari script a
