What better place is there to start talking about the alphabet than the dictionary? I show here Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary (1979 second printing), The Story of English (3rd printing December 1986) and Webster’s Dictionary of Word Origins (2004 edition). Between these three volumes, one can find just about anything one would want to know about the alphabet in an English language context! The Unabridged was a Christmas gift for me – yes, I asked for an unabridged dictionary for Christmas and Santa Claus obliged me. The other two books I bought. All three are fascinating reads!
