It's time to pull the reins of language a bit so that we might more closely analyze the letters we wrap our lips around daily. Take this cursive letters identification quiz and spend a moment or two appreciating just how far language has evolved. It's a must that we look back to the days of the Phoenicians, Etruscans, Greeks and Romans with this feat. These ancient civilizations set the stage for the jibber jabber we speak and write to this day.
And speaking of time travel, our test considers intricate derivations of the 26 characters in the English alphabet. Analyzing letters that comprise the words we use to analyze things is thrillingly bewildering; it's like the "chicken-or-the-egg" scenario, but of the cerebral sort and similar to answering a question with the same question. But bear with us on this! We promise pleasant payoffs, such as peculiar words that just about any "Scrabble" pro would scramble over and "magical" letters whose sounds repeatedly diminish when in the presence of certain character combinations. You'll learn rules of English language mechanics that aren't always intuitive.
Why are the letters "x" and "z" so darn interchangeable? What the heck were our letter pioneers thinking? Gain morsels of language wisdom with one hefty scroll!
