Why are some languages written left to right?

Actually, we don't have much written historical records of how the writing system has started from right to left or left to right. We believe they were started to avoid smudging from the other side. And mostly they are for the convenience of writing.

Here are some languages which are written from left to right.

  • Arabic.
  • Aramaic.
  • Azeri.
  • Dhivehi / Maldivian.
  • Hebrew.
  • Kurdish (Sorani)
  • Persian/Farsi.
  • Urdu.
