Sorry that it didn’t come out on Monday but we’ve been just totally behind on everything the last two weeks so here is our weekly question just a few days late.
There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!)
Chosen letter : A
So how to write my post without using the chosen letter?
Not sure if I know enough words to write without it. Truly picking one vowel for this is the stupidest thing to do. Right now I’m not sure this is working. I think I need to give up…….
Well that didn’t go well. Everything seemed to have a A in it. Its true that we need all these letters, yet there was a time when I was really worried that we were going to lose any real words in favour of TXT SPK which I never got. I used to bombard people with 20 messages, hell with the charge, just to make sure I had perfectly spelt everything. Of course I didn’t do it in a anal way because I am not the best when it comes to spelling or grammar even though I try my hardest but I still thought it was important to try. Something that was lost on people like my sister.
Even with other letters I’m not sure I’d be able to make much sense. Every letter is in more words then you might think. The only letter I think I could easily leave out is Z or maybe X.
It would be a good exercise over a number of days to write sentences and then try to find other ways to word those sentences with the specific goal in mind to eliminate a letter from existence but I personally don’t think I’ll ever be smart enough to do that.
