The Letters "J" and "W." [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 6 June 1896

Tlje Letters "J" and "IT." "Writers and renders are not generally aware that the letters " j" and " w" are but modern additions to our alphabet. The use of the " j" was almost unknown before 1648, and probably arosa from the old habit of tailing the last " i" In Roman numerals, thus-8-viij. The ne.v British Museum catalogue uses the " j," but not as a separate letter. It Is in all respects identical with " I," and employed as though it had no Independent existence at all. About 1580 printers began to dis cover that there was a sound in the Eng lish language which could not be ex pressed by any single letter. " Wish," for instance, was spelled with two .. v's," thus, "wish." After a while the type founders joined these letters together, ; and in this way arose our modern " w." i Headers of olcl books' v/iil never be at a I loss for examples of antiquated methp4s.l of spelling with which to test t&e u?& of | tbeleUers referred tb.
