F is the sixth letter of the latin alphabet. It is encoded in unicode as Latin Capital Letter F, U+0046 (F) and Latin Small Letter F, U+0066 (f).

Appearance Edit

A capital F is very similar to Greek Letter Digamma, U+03DC (Ϝ), and may be completely identical in some fonts.

The Armenian Small Letter Keh, U+0584 (ք) may look like a lower case f, but more often it looks like a p with a stroke through its descender.

Usage Edit

The letter F is used in many languages that use the latin alphabet. Although some languages, like Finnish, have no use for it, as they do not have an f-sound, and thus only uses it in loan words.

In the International Phonetic Alphabet, it represents a voiceless labiodental fricative.

Diacritics, ligatures and derivations Edit
