Words beginning with D suitable for teaching children the alphabet? Seriously?2toise 03:32, 20 Oct 2003 (UTC)

Sure, 2toise, and I'm glad you brought the subject up. Since letters are the building blocks of words, and children's first traditional entry to learning language, I think it is a creative and useful entry to Wikipedia's articles on the alphabet. And I would welcome your ideas for entries relating to the rest of the alphabet. Paul Klenk 03:37, 20 Oct 2003 (UTC)
Um, children's first traditional entry to learning language is listening to their parents talk, not letters of the alphabet. Nohat

Delta-number combinations[edit]

Anyone know of something to do when making dis-ambiguation pages involving a Delta-number combination?? (See User:Georgia guy/Letter number combinations for the definition.)

I've been checking D6 and I can't find any other uses of D6 when studying Special:Allpages. I've been using D6 and D-6. Any way to find uses of D6 other than that?? Not all articles the dis-ambiguation pages of this kind link to can be found this way (e.g. Channel 4 is in C4 but it cannot be found by studying Special:Allpages/C4.)

D digraphs[edit]

Aren't dge and dj digraphs as they represent one sound?Cameron Nedland 23:15, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Egyptian D[edit]

That symbol isn't actually an Egyptian D. An Egyptian D is a hand. (talk) 21:03, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Unit of time[edit]

A lower case d is used for the unit of time called "day", defined as 86,400 SI seconds. ...

D and d have plenty of other symbolic uses. Why not leave them all to D (disambiguation)? —Tamfang (talk) 00:57, 29 April 2011 (UTC)


This sentence was out of place, at best. —Tamfang (talk) 22:27, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Why "O"?[edit]

Um the illustration purporting to show a cursive "D", etc. shows two "O's" Why is that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:18, 8 August 2013 (UTC)


Everyone must embrace the D. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:7:8080:4BC:3CF7:2DE2:A242:41B9 (talk) 07:09, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

I am surprised[edit]

I am surprised that D is a letter in the classic Latin alphabet. —Speling12345 (talk) 12:36, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
