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