History

The letter G was introduced in the Old Latin period as a variant of C to distinguish Latin voiced velar /ɡ/ from voiceless /k/. The recorded originator of the letter G is freedman Spurius Carvilius Ruga, the first Roman to open a fee-paying school, who taught around 230 BC. At this time, K had fallen out of favour, and C, which had formerly expressed both ɡ and k before open vowels, had come to express k in all environments. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Look up C, c in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... Velars are consonants articulated with the back part of the tongue (the dorsum) against the soft palate (the back part of the roof of the mouth, known also as the velum). ... Spurius Carvilius Ruga (possibly 600 BCE or 230 BCE) was a semi-legendary freedman living in Rome who invented the letter G. His invention would have been quickly adapted in the Roman republic because the letter C was, at the time, confusingly used both for the /k/ and /g/ sounds. ... For other uses, see K (disambiguation). ...


Ruga's positioning of G shows that alphabetic order, related to the letters' values as Greek numerals, was a concern even in the 3rd century BC. Sampson (1985) suggested that: "Evidently the order of the alphabet was felt to be such a concrete thing that a new letter could be added in the middle only if a ‘space’ was created by the dropping of an old letter."[2] According to some records, the original seventh letter, R, had been purged from the Latin alphabet somewhat earlier in the 3rd century BC by the Roman censor Appius Claudius, who found it distasteful and foreign.[3] Greek numerals are a system of representing numbers using letters of the Greek alphabet. ... Ordinary Magistrates Extraordinary Magistrates Titles and Honors Emperor Politics and Law A Censor was a magistrate of high rank in the ancient Roman Republic. ... Appius Claudius Caecus (Appius Claudius the Blind, c. ...


Eventually, both velar consonants /k/ and /ɡ/ developed palatalizations and allophones before front vowels, which is why today, C and G have different sound values in the various Romance languages, as well as English (because of French influence). Palatalization means pronouncing a sound nearer to the hard palate, making it more like a palatal consonant; this is towards the front of the mouth for a velar or uvular consonant, but towards the back of the mouth for a front (e. ... In phonetics, an allophone is one of several similar phones that belong to the same phoneme. ... The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ...


Typographic forms

Typographic variants include a double-story and single-story g.
Typographic variants include a double-story and single-story g.

The modern lower case G has two written and typographic variants: the single-story (sometimes opentail) G and the double-story (sometimes looptail) G . The single-story version derives from the majuscule (upper-case) form by raising the serif that distinguishes it from a C to the top of the loop, thereby closing the loop, and extending the vertical stroke downward and to the left. The double-story form developed similarly, except that some ornate forms then extended the tail back to the right, and to the left again, forming a closed bowl or loop. The initial extension to the left was absorbed into the upper closed bowl. The single-story version became popular when printing switched to "Roman type" because the tail was effectively shorter, making it possible to put more lines on a page. In the double-story version, a small stroke in the upper-right, often terminating in an orb shape, is called an "ear". Minuscule, or lower case, is the smaller form (case) of letters (in the Roman alphabet: a, b, c, ...). Originally alphabets were written entirely in majuscule (capital) letters which were spaced between well-defined upper and lower bounds. ... Image File history File links Opentail_g. ...

Generally, the two minuscule forms are interchangeable, but occasionally the difference has been exploited to make a contrast. The 1949 Principles of the International Phonetic Association recommends using for advanced voiced velar plosives and for regular ones where the two are contrasted, but this suggestion was never accepted by phoneticians in general, and today is the symbol used in the International Phonetic Alphabet, with acknowledged as an acceptable variant.

Usage

In English, the letter represents a voiced postalveolar affricate /dʒ/) ("soft G"), as in: giant, ginger, and geology; or a voiced velar plosive /ɡ/ ("hard G"), as in: goose, gargoyle, and game. In some words of French origin, the "soft G" is pronounced as a fricative (/ʒ/), as in rouge, beige, and genre. Generally, G is soft before E, I, and Y, and hard otherwise, but there are many English words of non-Romance origin where G is soft or hard regardless of position (e.g. "get"), and two (gaol, margarine) in which it is soft even before an A.

Giant can refer to: Giant is colloquially used for a human who is unusually tall, or afflicted with one of the several forms of gigantism. ... For other uses, see Ginger (disambiguation). ... This article includes a list of works cited but its sources remain unclear because it lacks in-text citations. ... The voiced velar plosive is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. ...


Languages which are neither Romance nor Germanic in origin typically use G to represent /ɡ/ regardless of position (however, the Dutch language does not have /ɡ/ in its native words, and instead G is pronounced as a voiced velar fricative /ɣ/, a sound that does not occur in modern English). German, however, is notable for its sparse use of G for a "soft G" sound within the language (to represent the sounds /ʒ/ or the voiceless postalveolar fricative /ʃ/) regardless of its position within German words. While the soft value of G varies in different Romance languages (/ʒ/ in French, Catalan, and Portuguese, /ʤ/ in Italian and Romanian, and /x/ in Castilian Spanish and /h/ in other dialects of Spanish), in all except Romanian and Italian, soft G is pronounced the same as the J of the same Romance language. The Romance languages (sometimes referred to as Romanic languages) are a branch of the Indo-European language family that comprises all the languages that descend from Latin, the language of the Roman Empire. ... Dutch ( ) is a West Germanic language spoken by around 24 million people, mainly in the Netherlands, Belgium and Suriname, but also by smaller groups of speakers in parts of France, Germany and several former Dutch colonies. ...

In languages that use Cyrillic alphabet it is marked as Г (in Russian) or Ґ (in Ukrainian). In Hebrew it corresponds to letter gimel and is marked as ג. The Cyrillic alphabet (pronounced also called azbuka, from the old name of the first two letters) is actually a family of alphabets, subsets of which are used by certain Slavic languages — Belarusian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Russian, Rusyn, Serbian, and Ukrainian—as well as many other languages of the former Soviet Union... Gimel is a commune in Switzerland of the canton of Vaud, located in the district of Aubonne. ...


Several digraphs are common in English. GH originally represented the letter yogh which English adopted from Old Irish, and took various values including /ɡ/, /ɣ/, /x/, and /j/. It now has a great variety of values, including /f/ in enough, /ɡ/ in loan words like spaghetti, and as an indicator of a letter's "long" pronunciation in words like eight and night. GN, with value /n/, is also common, as in gnaw. When not initial it appears mostly before i, rendering it "long" in the process (eg. sign) but it is not obvious whether this should be interpreted as a similar GN digraph or instead an IG digraph, equivalent to i + gh in words such as sigh. Note: This page or section contains IPA phonetic symbols in Unicode. ... Gh is a digraph found in many languages. ... The letter yogh (Èœ ȝ; Middle English: ogh) was used in Middle English and Middle Scots, representing y (IPA: ) and various velar phonemes. ... Old Irish is the name given to the oldest form of the Irish language, or, rather, the Goidelic languages, for which extensive written texts are possessed. ...


In Italian and Romanian, GH is used to represent a /ɡ/ value before front vowels where G would otherwise represent a soft value. In Italian and French, GN is used to represent the palatal nasal /ɲ/, a sound similar to the NY in canyon. Gn is a digraph of the Latin Alphabet found in many languages. ... The palatal nasal is a type of consonant, used in some spoken languages. ...


G is used an average amount in the English language. While not one of the letters that appears rarely, it is also not one of the most commonly used consonants.
