GALLERY IMAGES AND PHOTOS THAT STARTS WITH J


The letter " J " originated as a variation for the letter " i " at the end of the Romans to follow another ' i ' as in ' xxiij ' instead of ' xxiii ' for the Roman numeral representing 23 numbers. A distinctive usage emerged in Middle High German . Gian Giorgio Trissino (1478-1550) was the first to explicitly distinguish I and J as representing separate sounds , as " the Trissino Ɛpistola le lettere nuωvamente aggiunte ne the Italian language " ( or in Spanish , " Epistle of Trissino recently added the letters in the Italian language " ) of 1524.

Originally, 'I' and ' J' were different forms of the same letter , both equally representing / i /, / i ː / and / j / , but the Romance languages ​​developed new sounds ( ex / j / and / ɡ / ) which came to be represented as ' I' and ' J' , therefore , English J acquired French J has a value quite different from sound / j / (representing the initial sound of the English word " and et " ).
