Similarities Between

What are the differences and similarities between hieroglyphics and the English alphabet?

Hieroglyphics have one set of characters (among many) that represent phonetic consonant sounds, similar to the Latin alphabet.

The difference is, the Hieroglyphic "alphabet" has no vowels, other than semivowels such as W and Y. The Hieroglyphic alphabet also contains a set of characters that each represent 2 consonants, and another set that represent 3 consonants.

There are also thousands of characters that represent whole words.

What letter occurs halfway through the alphabet?

The English alphabet has 26 letters. The thirteenth letter is 'M'

But this letter is not in the middle of the alphabet, neither is it halfway between the A and the Z.

'M' is at the last letter of the first half of the letters. But if you are counting from backwards from Z, the thirteenth letter is 'N'.

The same reasoning applies to all alphabets with an equal number of letters. There is no letter at the half-way point.

But if the question is about another alphabet, and one with an odd number of letters, you can easily identify the letter that is exactly halfway through, by counting.

For example, the modern standard Italian alphabet has 21 letters, and the middle letter is the 11th letter, an 'M', but this time it really is exactly half-way through the alphabet!

Or if the question is "What letter occurs halfway through 'the alphabet'?", the answer is the letter 'p'!

What was the last letter Alison Hargreaves wrote to her parents?

Dear Mum and Dad,

How are you? It's been awhile since the last time I've wrote a letter to you and I'm currently at the base of K2. I know this is sudden but after hours of deciding, I've made the courageous decision to stay and climb to the summit of K2. I was really convinced by one of my fellow climbers to stay because opportunities like this don't always come. In addition, it is my dream to be the only British woman to reach K2. Ever since I started this career, it has been my ambition and with this opportunity standing right in front of me, I have to press on.

This must be very shocking to you but I really hope you can understand. This achievement will really help my career as a mountain climber. It is going to be a rough journey but in time, we will make it to the top. The conditions in K2 might be eerie and dangerous but what's life without taking any risks? I see myself standing proudly on top of the mountain, gazing upon an amazing view and thinking about this accomplishment my team and I have made.

My fellow climbers are experienced and well-trained and with their skills, they will help me achieve my goal. I promise I will take care of myself so please don't worry. The journey to the summit of K2 will take several months so I'll likely be back at the end of November. While I'm gone, my kids will be very upset so during this period of time, please take care Tom and Kate, your grandkids. Tell them I miss them a ton and I'll be home soon.

I really hope nothing horrible will happen but in the event where something does, I just want you to know that I love you and I am sorry for ever disrespecting you.

Love Alison,

What is a sentence with 26 letters?

A sentence containing all 26 letters, "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." used to be used as a typing test. There are sentences that contain precisely 26 letters, each used once, but they're not normal conversational English. The one I remember from Write magazine in the 1970's is "Squdgy fez blank jimp vox crwth." A crwth is a Welsh instrument.
