Letters of the English Alphabet

The English alphabet has 26 letters:

a b c d e f g
h i j k l m n
o p q r s t u
v w x y z    

The letters above are "small letters". But they can also be written as large letters or capital letters.

The letters of the alphabet are also sometimes called "characters").


Small and Large Letters

Each letter of the English alphabet can be written as a "small letter" or as a "large letter". Large letters are also called "capital letters" or "capitals".

Small letters a b c d e f g
Capital letters A B C D E F G
Small letters h i j k l m n
Capital letters H I J K L M N
Small letters o p q r s t u
Capital letters O P Q R S T U
Small letters v w x y z

Capital letters V W X Y Z


In informal English, we sometimes call capitals just "caps".

Small letters are sometimes called "lower case" and large letters "upper case". This is because in the old days of printing, before computers, the metal blocks for setting type were kept in two different boxes or "cases": small letters in the bottom or lower case, large letters in the top or upper case.
The English word "alphabet" comes from the Latin word "alphabetum". The Latin word "alphabetum" came from the first two letters of the Greek alphabet, "alpha" and "beta".
