The Letter S (The English Alphabet)

The letter S is the Nineteenth letter in The English Alphabet.  It is also the fifteenth Consonant in The English Alphabet.

As with every letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter S has two versions in the written form.

These two versions are called:  The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.


The Upper-Case S looks like this:


The Lower-Case S looks like this:


Notice that the only difference between The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case S is the size.  The Lower-Case S is just a bit smaller.  You will find that this is the same for quite a few letters in The Alphabet.


The letter S is only pronounced one way in The English language.

As you learn English, you will notice that The Letter S is often combined with The Letter H.  When this happens, it is pronounced differently.
