THE ALPHABET
THE Spanish alphabet consists of twenty-eight letters.

Ch, ll, and rr, though double in form, are single letters, and may not be separated. W is found in foreign words only, and is pronounced as in English.

The student should not at first attempt to learn the Spanish names of the letters, but merely their sounds, or, orthographical force.

This is the alphabet :
A, a, ah.

ěm'-may.
b,

ẽm'-may.
thay.

ěn'-yay.
tchay.
D, d, day.

pay.
E, e, ay.

kóo. >f'-fay.

er'-ray.

ěs'-say. ắt -chay.

tay. I, i,

U, u,
ho'-tah,

V, V, vay.
K, k, kah.

ěh'-kees.
ěl'-lay.

e-gree-ay'-gah. ! LL, ll, ěl'-yay.

2, thay-tah. The vowels have but one quality of sound.

A ordinarily has the sound of a in land; as, animal, año; but when it is followed by two consonants in the same word, or stands at the end of a word and is unaccented, it has a slightly broader sound, as a in father; as, martes,
