- Adjectives That Start with S
Thinking about adjectives that start with S? The letter S finds its origins in ancient Egyptian hieroglyph drawings of a sword. The ancient Egyptians used the S a lot, and at one time had nine different symbols that represented various versions of an "s" or "sh" sound!
Fortunately, when the Phoenicians began to develop the modern alphabet from which our alphabet is derived, they dropped most of those drawings and sounds and created one main version of the letter S. The ancient Greeks and Romans made a few more changes, and even in our own English alphabet the letter S went through a change (in the 17th century a letter that looked like a lowercase F actually represented the S sound). Finally, though, the twists and turns that comprise our current letter S, the 19th letter in the alphabet, were adopted, and a super letter it is.
