Mater lectionis - Mater lectionis is a scripture system by which vowels are represented by weak consonants; this is the system used in Semitic languages like Hebrew or Arab that lack letters for true vowels. The system is not the only one used to represent vowels: in Hebrew, the niqqud system is also used. It consists in a special assortment of symbols consisting of dots and lines that can be easily added to any text in order to clarify the meaning of words when the reader is in doubt. It is not widely used these days, and the tendency, generally speaking, in these languages is to develop a full-vowel representation by using the weak consonants.
