Not 100% sure whether this belongs here or not…anyway, I see a lot of people (myself included) who are quite fond of the symbol font. I thought I might run through the Greek alphabet for anyone who might be interested. The pronunciations I’m giving are the English pronunciations I learned from classical Greek, and they’re very different from what’s found in modern Greek.

```
symbol keystroke name Pronunciation
**[sym]A[/sym]** A Alpha Short 'a', as in "bat"
**[sym]B[/sym]** B Beta 'b', as in "bat"
**[sym]G[/sym]** G Gamma 'g' as in "good"
**[sym]D[/sym]** D Delta 'd' as in "dog"
**[sym]E[/sym]** E Epsilon 'e' as in "bet"
**[sym]Z[/sym]** Z Zeta 'z' as in "Bizarro"
**[sym]H[/sym]** H Eta Long 'a' as in "fate"
**[sym]Q[/sym]** Q Theta 'th' as in "thing"
**[sym]I[/sym]** I Iota 'i' as in "bit"
**[sym]K[/sym]** K Kappa 'k' as in "kite"
**[sym]L[/sym]** L Lambda 'l' as in "look"
**[sym]M[/sym]** M Mu 'm' as in "move"
**[sym]N[/sym]** N Nu 'n' as in "no"
**[sym]X[/sym]** X Xi 'x' as in "sex", even at the beginning of a word
**[sym]O[/sym]** O Omicron Short 'o' as in "bottle"
**[sym]P[/sym]** P Pi 'p' as in "pie"
**[sym]R[/sym]** R Rho 'r' as in "rose"
**[sym]S[/sym]** S Sigma 's' as in "sell"
**[sym]T[/sym]** T Tau 't' as in "type"
**[sym]U[/sym]** U Upsilon 'u' as in boot
**[sym]F[/sym]** F Phi 'f' as in fearless
**[sym]C[/sym]** C Chi 'k' as in "kite"
**[sym]Y[/sym]** Y Psi 'ps' as in "corpse", even at the beginning of a word
**[sym]W[/sym]** W Omega Long 'o' as in "quote"
```

Of course, the letters below are pronounced as those above, with one noted exception. Also, I realize that linguists would cringe at my description of long and short vowels, but I think that’s pretty close to what everyone else knows.
