download the english alphabet

The English Alphabet is a no-cost download from Electricka that shows the capital and lowercase letters of the modern English alphabet.





The English Alphabet is organized in the form of a table in which each letter is a symbol, with symbols that represent the capitals (uppercase or large letters) in the left column and the symbols that represent the lowercase (or small) letters in the right column. The name of the symbol, spelled in English, is in the right-most column.

Each row in the table represents a specific letter in the 26-letter English alphabet. Reading from left to right, a row contains an image of the capital letter, an image of the corresponding lowercase letter, and the name of the letter spelled in English, in that order.

Each symbol denotes a single vowel or consonant—a single sound in the English language. Pronounce (sound out) the letter name in the table to hear how the letter is pronounced.

Suggestions for Use

The table takes the form of a computer file. Keep the table handy for future reference on your computer and open it whenever you want to decipher Greek writing; or print it and take it with you. Consult the alphabet when you want to:

  • Sound out written English words the way you would sound out words in your native tongue.
  • Copy individual letters from the table and paste them into your word processor or other programs. Since they're images, you can make them larger or smaller.

If English is a second language, keep this alphabet close; it's a handy reference.

About the English Alphabet

English is the lingua franca of the modern world. We all take it for granted, but the machinery of the world would grind to a halt without it. You may find exploring the origin of this wonderful, workaday linguistic tool surprisingly interesting.

About the Greek Alphabet

The Greek alphabet has given rise to many other alphabets used in Europe and the Middle East, including the Latin alphabet. It is used for writing modern Greek today. In addition, its letters are employed as symbols in mathematics and engineering, as particle names in physics, as the names of stars, in the names of fraternities and sororities, in the naming of certain tropical cyclones, and for other purposes.
