Hi Alberto

But alphabets are not phonemic are they? And some alphabets are curvy (Thai) where as others are very angular (Chinese)

Even in Latin based alphabets there are going to be difficulties with your view 
I think.

The 'c' in 'circle' is essy and soft.

But the 'c' in 'cut' is sharp and 'angular'.

Same 'curvy' letter though.

And coins which are round are spelled with a rounded "c" instead of a spiky "k". But there are obviously going to be cultural accidents in these associations. That's why anthropologists use made up words like "kiki" and "bouba".
