The Alphabet

April 01, 2024

It's interesting that there's no spelling for the letters in the alphabet, even though we are pronouncing words, specifically with the consonants.  If we spelled them all out we would get:

One things that's notacible is all the consonants use either an a or e sound with the exception of Y and Q.  If the e comes before the consonant it's a short e sound, and if it comes after it's a long sound.

H is interesting because it only has the sound of ch, it doesn't contain it's own unmodified sound.  W doesn't even contain the sound of itself in anyway.  

O is hard to spell out, it actually has three sounds it makes, such as in pot, soon, flow.
