an appendix to “the disappearing alphabet”

October 14, 2008

this character, mr. digamma,

can be found in a musty old grammar.

how woida came oida,

left video, wit,

and ask why we lost our digamma.

    Nota bene, it is imperative to read “wit” as a verb, imperative to wit.

    a master of change orthographic,
    of sigmas intervocalic,
    expounding on grammar
    introduced dear digamma,
    while he slipped away with his magic.
