The Letter N

Todays blog is brought to you by the letter N

N is for...well N

The letter N is the first letter of a very important word in the English language: No. Many people claim to have trouble saying "no," while many kids complain that their parents say "no" too much. Regardless of your personal feelings on the word "no" it is clear that it depends on the N for its first letter. The famous kids chant Na-na-na-na-na-naaaaa, used to taunt unwitting victims on the playground for generations, also depends on the letter N. Well, perhaps it wouldn't be so bad to lose that N chant.... BUT plenty of other neat words need N in order to exist as well. Nobody could write about a new experience without the letter N, for example, nor could they tell someone necessary news about their needs. Nope, its clear that we can't say No when asked if N is an important letter in English!
