What are letters?

This CD cover for a well known jazz musician reminds me that letters are simply symbols for sound. Our alphabet is an arbitrary code that we have to learn in order to understand language

These icons are also symbols for a sound, but the code is not our familiar alphabet.

A hint: the globe represents the letter A.
