From A, B,C ... and X, Y , Z, here in total 26 letters in English.

Every letter is the commander of the next series of following up words, right?

Know the original meaning of the letters might provide beneficial refference in enchancing learning practice, but how?

Example(randomly): "resident" is a simple word, if we give a "" in the front of the word "resident", then we get the word: President, whether can we say that the letter P has something related to "covering"? etc.

Everything has its rule, science including language too has its unique features for people to following up easily.

Joke is joke, science is science, two subjects could not be mixed up.

Question here is what is your take related to the letters?  I am just curiously on the matter.
