The Letter I (The English Alphabet)
As with every Letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter I has two versions in the written form. These two versions are called: The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.
The Upper-Case I looks like this:
The Lower-Case I looks like this:
Notice that the only difference between The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case I is the size, and that The Lower-Case I has a dot on top. You will find that this is the same for quite a few letters in The Alphabet.
As you learn The Common Tongue of The English Language, you will see that The Letter I can be pronounced many different ways. The two primary ways to pronounce The letter I are called, the “Short” Pronunciation and the “Long” Pronunciation.
The Short I
The Long I
