Arabic and certain other languages (for example, Farsi and Urdu) have cursive alphabets, most of the letters of which have different shapes depending on the position of the letter in a word. Each letter may be in the initial position, a medial position or the final position in a word, or may be an isolated letter. When forming text using an alphabet of this type, the correct shape of each letter must be used.
