Ascenders as in "h" and descenders as in "p" make the height of lower-case letters vary. There is more variation in the height of the minuscules, as some of them have parts higher ascenders or lower descenders than the typical size. In addition, with old-style numerals still used by some traditional or classical fonts, 6 and 8 make up the ascender set, and 3, 4, 5, 7 and 9 the descender set. Bicameral script[ edit ] This section possibly contains original research.
Try actually looking at the comment in question. It was not commas that were left out, or anything else that changes meaning. Implying someone is illiterate because they chose not to bother with apostrophes where they are unnecessary, is like implying someone is poor because they chose not to buy something.
But there is no evidence of illiteracy there or here- only evidence of a person not using punctuation.
The grammar is on point, spelling is on point, and general coherence is obvious. If he wants to make an intuitive, astute comment about the underlying psychology behind my comment, I would have little to argue there probably. But what he did say, is just juvenile and inept, tbh.
In addition to that, you can find quite a few publications talking about the death of the apostrophe, and how its being slowly removed from our language. Apostrophes werent even used commonly until the s or on, and plenty agree they are superfluous. Craig Piercy I generally write the 6th letter of the alphabet as an f.
In my opinion the 6th letter is: People fail to completely read and even think about what is written. Less only works if you put one or more readers in a blender and then continue to count them in the subject population.
My guess is that you are a BlendTec salesrep. Its print believe it or not, and all of us learned cursive letters by themselves and together in words. Thats how you practice them, stand alone. Thats not relevant here. Not because we write that way but because I have seen it since childhood.
And yes, I did know 9s should have a point at top right. There are 2 ways people learn to write numbers- some with the 4 open, but others including myself learn to write it just like this- 4. How is generalization connected to cursive? Cursive letters look nothing like print in many cases.
Also, just because you make certain generalizations, and patterns appear one way to you, does not mean they appear that way to another person.
The study was about the fact that people have no problem remembering all the other print characters, but seem to be unfamiliar in particular with g. Im not trying to argue, im genuinely trying to understand you, or get you to elaborate.
I spend my free time studying physics, not language. We learn a language by generalizing, right… But, this is character writing. This is not language patterns, this is learning the physical structure of how to write letters.
English has a very scattered, irregular orthography though…so how can the physical structure of letters be generalized? I understand how spoken language uses generalization, but not written letters, standing alone? In fact, the researchers did not indicate a particular font or form, but created a serif hybrid in four forms.
The researchers were not specific in how knowledge of letter shapes is central to reading. We also understand text even when someone spells something wrong, or omits or substitutes letters, or deliberately changes the order of letters.
R, from All Right. Second one just felt right, the other three not. The g I learned to write was one this font uses: Curious about what you are looking for here when you ask for people to respond.
Dana Probably can be explained by the abysmally low number of people who bother reading anymore. Most print books still use that closed-loop g.
Willi Kampmann I hesitated between 2 and 3 for a short moment, but then chose the correct one. The flow of the archs makes more sense in 2 in my opinon.
However, one reason why I hesitated is because I noticed that 3 comes closest to the modern g: Historically, it was constructed from that weird ancient f letter and an s or a z, and in most typefaces you can still see the origins, and actually recognize either the s or the z.
So I guess the weird-g shows how the letter originally was invented.
Golan Klinger I got it instantly because I use the character to write my name.G (named gee / dʒ iː /) is the 7th letter in the ISO basic Latin alphabet.
Writing with Metric Units Share. Facebook Symbols of prefixes that mean a million or more are capitalized and those less than a million are lower case (M for mega (millions), m for milli (thousandths)). hyphenating the quantity is not necessary.
