The Letter O (The English Alphabet)



The letter O is the fifteenth Letter in The English Alphabet.  It is also the fourth Vowel in The English Alphabet.

As with every Letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter O has two versions in the written form.  These two versions are called:  The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.

 


The Upper-Case O looks like this:

The Lower-Case O looks like this:

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