IF one knows primordial, the barazhad script, does that mean one can also at least understand and read abyssal which also uses the barazhad script?
No, because primordial and abyssal are different language even if using the same script.

"Script" in this context is essentially what we refer to as the alphabet. English, German, French, Spanish, and various other European languages all use the same alphabet (minor differences with accents notwithstanding), but knowing one of them doesn't inherently let you understand the others.
Also, knowing one script dosen't necessarily mean you can read every language written in it.

Every word in the above sentence is writen in the english alphabet.
Do all people who speak english understand the meaning of every word in the above sentence?

Right.


Or even just simple English vs. Spanish.  Spanish only uses a couple of different characters from English, and can be READ by anyone who can read English, but that doesn't mean you understand what the words mean.  

OD&D, 1E and 2E challenged the player. 3E challenged the character, not the player. Now 4E takes it a step further by challenging a GROUP OF PLAYERS to work together as a TEAM. That's why I love 4E.
