I'm pleased you've decided to internationalise these, Domergue - as I was never going to dare! But nitpicking is another say A is the first letter of most variants of the Latin alphabet: I think you should therefore say which variants do not have A as the 1st letter - or boldly change 'most' to 'all'. Ro Thorpe 17:23, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Ro. There are variants of the Latin alphabet which don't begin with A. It is at least the case in Somali and in Arapaho.--Domergue Sumien 18:10, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, that's very interesting: merits a footnote, no? Ro Thorpe 18:23, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

As you like. It's also the case in Chamorro. I bet we could find many other examples.--Domergue Sumien 18:25, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, I bet you could... Ro Thorpe 18:39, 22 December 2008 (UTC) - Thanks for the note. 19:15, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
