I see the digraph FH mentioned. What about PH ? Mikkalai 07:35, 16 Dec 2003 (UTC)


"in education, F is a failing grade" - can someone make this a bit more specific (certain qualification or country maybe?) Davidjamesgill 12:50, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

F in Etruscan[edit]

This article says F stood for the w sound in Etruscan, but elsewhere in Wikipedia it says F stood for the v sound. Which is right?? Georgia guy 00:21, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure, where on wikipedia does it say that? Fresheneesz 01:45, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
Etruscan F is transcribed as Latin V, which was a similar if not the same sound. However, Latin V wasn't pronounced [v], but [w]. Greek F was also pronounced [w], and Etruscan had no other voiced fricatives, so it's a good bet that Etruscan F was pronounced [w] too. kwami 08:04, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

F's importance not shown in article length[edit]

For a letter thats so important F has a rather short page. I think anyone named frank would have somehting to say about that. Are they supposed to spell it "Phrank"? Thats a bit too queer for my tastes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.186.128.13 (talk) 03:41, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Written F, with a descender[edit]

In Britain children are taught to write the lower-case f with a below-line descender, rather like g or y. I came to Wikipedia to find out why this is, but it doesn't appear to be mentioned. It'd be nice if it was. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.11.175.182 (talk) 13:59, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
