Letter

f

  1. F is the sixth letter of the English alphabet, and a nonvocal consonant. Its form and sound are from the Latin. The Latin borrowed the form from the Greek digamma Ϝ, which probably had the value of English w consonant. The form and value of Greek letter came from the Phœnician, the ultimate source being probably Egyptian.
    Etymologically f. is most closely related to pl., k, v, and b; as in English f.ive from Greek pe`nte; English wolf., from Latin lupl.us, and Greek ly`kos; English f.ox, vixen ; f.ragile, break; f.ruit, brook; English verb bear, from Latin f.erre.

  2. (music) The name of the fourth tone of the model scale, or scale of C. F sharp (F♯) is a tone intermediate between F and G.
