Interesting
Facts About English



in no particular order...



  • The
    most common letter in English is "e".

  • The
    most common vowel in English is "e", followed by "a".

  • The
    most common consonant in English is "r", followed by
    "t".

  • Every
    syllable in English must have a vowel (sound). Not all syllables have
    consonants.

  • Only
    two English words in current use end in "-gry". They are
    "angry" and "hungry".

  • The
    word "bookkeeper" is the only unhyphenated English word with 3
    consecutive repeated letters. Words such as "cross-section" and
    "bee-eater" normally require a hyphen to be readily readable.

  • The
    word "triskaidekaphobia" means "fear of Friday the
    13th". It also means "superstition about the number
    thirteen" in general.

  • More
    English words begin with the letter "s" than with any other
    letter.

  • A preposition is always followed by a noun (ie
    noun, proper noun, pronoun, noun group, gerund).

  • The
    word "uncopyrightable" is the longest English word in normal use
    that contains no letter more than once.

  • A
    sentence that contains all 26 letters of the alphabet is called a
    "pangram".

  • The
    following sentence contains all 26 letters of the alphabet: "The
    quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." This sentence is often used
    to test typewriters or keyboards.

  • The
    only word in English that ends with the letters "-mt" is
    "dreamt" (which is a variant spelling of "dreamed") -
    as well of course as "undreamt" Smile

  • A word
    formed by joining together parts of existing words is called a
    "blend" (or, less commonly, a "portmanteau word").
    Many new words enter the English language in this way. Examples are
    "brunch" (breakfast + lunch); "motel" (motorcar +
    hotel); and "guesstimate" (guess + estimate). Note that blends
    are not the same as compounds or compound nouns, which form when two whole
    words join together, for example: website, blackboard, darkroom.

  • The
    word "alphabet" comes from the first two letters of the Greek
    alphabet: alpha, bēta.

  • The dot
    over the letter "i" and the letter "j" is called a
    "superscript dot".

  • In
    normal usage, the # symbol has several names, for example: hash, pound
    sign, number sign.

  • In
    English, the @ symbol is usually called "the at sign" or
    "the at symbol".

  • If we
    place a comma before the word "and" at the end of a list, this
    is known as an "Oxford comma" or a "serial comma". For
    example: "I drink coffee, tea, and wine."

  • Some
    words exist only in plural form, for example: glasses (spectacles),
    binoculars, scissors, shears, tongs, gallows, trousers, jeans, pants,
    pyjamas (but note that clothing words often become singular when we use
    them as modifiers, as in "trouser pocket").

  • The
    shortest complete sentence in English is the following. "I am."

  • The
    word "Checkmate" in chess comes from the Persian phrase
    "Shah Mat" meaning "the king is helpless".

  • We
    pronounce the combination "ough" in 9 different ways, as in the
    following sentence which contains them all: "A rough-coated, dough-faced,
    thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after
    falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed."

  • The
    longest English word without a true vowel (a, e, i, o or u) is
    "rhythm".

  • The
    only planet not named after a god is our own, Earth. The others are, in
    order from the Sun, Mercury, Venus, [Earth,] Mars, Jupiter, Saturn,
    Uranus, Neptune.

  • There
    are only 4 English words in common use ending in "-dous":
    hazardous, horrendous, stupendous, and tremendous.

  • We can
    find 10 words in the 7-letter word "therein" without rearranging
    any of its letters: the, there, he, in, rein, her, here, ere, therein,
    herein.

  • The
    following sentence contains 7 identical words in a row and still makes
    sense. "It is true for all that that that that that that that refers
    to is not the same that that that that refers to." (= It is true
    for all that that that that which that that refers to is not the
    same that which that that refers to.)

  • The
    "QWERTY keyboard" gains its name from the fact that its first 6
    letter keys are Q, W, E, R, T and Y. On early typewriters the keys were
    arranged in such a way as to minimize the clashing of the mechanical rods
    that carried the letters.
