G or g (pronounced: [ geː ]) is the seventh letter of the classical and modern Latin alphabet . He was born around 230 BC. Introduced as a variant of the C by the Roman writing school operator Spurius Carvilius Ruga . The letter G has an average frequency of 3.01% in German texts. This makes it the 13th most common letter in German texts .
On the origin of the character G in the Latin alphabet see Article C .
The letter G has taken many forms throughout the history of the Latin script:
In the upper case only the shape of a C with an attached found cauda (see. O> Q, P> R), the common form today with a broken ending on the line cauda use. A variant of this is the G with a rolled up cauda equina. In the Fraktur the capital letter G is completely closed and has added a decorative stroke as an integral part.
In the minuscule , most g-forms differ in the design of the descender: it can start on the left or right of the body of the letter, it can remain open or closed. Many people are unaware of the existence of the "two-tier" with the left accreting Direction descender and only typographically (printed or online) occurring small g unaware and can not due to lack of exercise handwritten reproduce.
In the italics of the 15th century, a form is common in which the cauda, which is open per se, is connected directly to the top line of the letter body. Striking is the form of halbunzialen g, the one below the line reaching 3 or one of the z Kurrentschrift similar (similar: ʒ).
