About This Item
Q is the seventeenth letter of the ISO basic Latin alphabet. The sound value of Qôp was a sound common to Semitic languages, but not found in English or most Indo-European ones. The original sound may have been qaw for "cord of wool", which in turn may have been based on an Egyptian hieroglyph. In the earliest Latin inscriptions, the letters C, K and Q were all used to represent the two sounds /k/ and /ɡ/, which were not differentiated in writing. Of these, Q was used before a rounded vowel (e.g. 〈EQO〉 'ego'), K before /a/, and C elsewhere. Later, the use of C (and its variant G) replaced most usages of K and Q: Q survived only to represent /k/ when immediately followed by a /w/ sound.
A popular baby name beginning with the letter Q is Quinn, for either sex of child.
