The Alphabet | Grammar...


[su_dropcap style=”flat”]T[/su_dropcap]he letter I is the ninth Letter in The English Alphabet.  It is also the third Vowel in The English Alphabet. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]A[/su_dropcap]s 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:

I

[/su_column]
[su_column size=”1/2″]

The Lower-Case I looks like this:

i

[/su_column]
[/su_row]

[su_dropcap style=”flat”]N[/su_dropcap]otice 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.
