Reading comprehension -TOEFL- Lesson 104 (Đọc hiểu -TOEFL- Lesson 104)

Reading and answers the question:

   Sequoyah was a young Cherokee Indian, son of a white trader and an
Indian squaw. At an early age, he became fascinated by "the talking
leaf," an expression that he used to describe the white man's written
records. Although many believed this "talking leaf" to be a gift
5 from the Great Spirit, Sequoyah refused to accept that theory. Like
other Indians of the period, he was illiterate, but his determination
to remedy the situation led to the invention of a unique 86-character
alphabet based on the-sound patterns that he heard.

10 His family and friends thought him mad, but while recuperating from
a hunting accident, he diligently and independently set out to create
a form of communication for his own people as well as for other Indians.
In 1821, after twelve years of work, he had successfully developed
a written language that would enable thousands of Indians to read
15 and write.

Sequoyah's desire to preserve words and events for later generations
has caused him to be remembered among the important inventors. The
giant redwood trees of California, called "sequoias" in his honor,
20 will further imprint his name in history.
