Notes

Five of the letters in the English Alphabet are vowels: A, E, I, O, U.

• The remaining 21 letters are consonants: B, C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, T, V, X, Z, and usually W and Y.

Written English includes the digraphs: ch ci ck gh ng ph qu rh sc sh th ti wh wr zh. These are not considered separate letters of the alphabet

• Two letters, “A” and “I,” also constitute words.

Until fairly recently (until 1835), the 27th letter of the alphabet (right after “z”) was the ampersand (&).

• The English Alphabet is based on the Latin script, which is the basic set of letters common to the various alphabets originating from the classical Latin alphabet.
