Do you have a special liking for any alphabet in English?

Alphabets - Some letters have a significance for us relating to something special.

The alphabet in English (as opposed to the French or the German or Italian or Spanish) is there is no characters that go over or under other characters. Examples would be àáâß just to show a few. The last is the German ß which is a double S. There are many many more and they come from the Latin which used them a lot. The only thing about English is dotting i and j and crossing t. Other than that you can write without having to pick up a pen and that makes writing a lot faster. Arabic is another language that is quite simple to write but with a lot of dots. The Asian languages are one word at a time and a lot of strokes. Other than Korean I have not picked up on any other languages (Japanese/Thai/Chinese/Filipino/etc...). The alphabet I like the most is the Hawaiian alphabet. Every letter is pronounced a certain way. In English a can be aye or aah or ah or any number of variations. The Hawaiian alphabet has only 18 letters as opposed to 26 with English which makes some of the words very long but because each letter is pronounced (there are no silent letters) and they are all pronounced the same way even if you don't know the word you can figure out how to say it. Thanks Zelo

Hi Apsara! It is so nice to see you after a gap. My favorite letter is A. May be it reminds me of the ram and Aries my star sign.And I always think that the letter A is a leader and have some command , authority and majestic. Have you noticed that my favorite letter and your favorites are all in your name.That is what you call the like mindedness I think. Anyway I am happy that I find time to be with you all my friends.

Also I agree that "A" has its own importance and since it is a vowel, it is seen almost every where.....Have a nice day. By the way are you Aries....I am capricorn.....and my hubby is Aries.....

I thought 'S' would definitely be your favorite letter. But why 'I' and 'P'?

Bala! How fertile and sharp is your mind, you can think of quite interesting and unusal questions to ask. My favourite of course is alphabet 'D'. My name begings with D, my wife's name also begins with 'D'. 'D' is the fourth alphabet in the list of alphabets. My date of marriage is also 4th. My house No. also contains number '4'. My date of birth is 13th - total 1+3 =4. Therefore, alphabet 'D' is my favourite. Deepak P.S. - Dear, wWhere were you all these days? Hope everything is fine with you. We were 'missing' you.

And I like your reasons for liking the letter D.The letter D probably developed from the logogram for a fish or a door. There are various Egyptian hieroglyphs that might have inspired this.
