In what way are ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs like letters in the English alphabet?

(1) Answers

They are similar because: 1) both are writing systems that code language: that is, anything said in a language can be written with them and they can be read aloud 2) some of the hieroglyphs refer to meaning, but some to sounds - just like letters 3) also, our alphabet actually comes from the Hieroglyphs - though the Greek script.
