All November I'll be blogging about the alphabet and word origins.
Alpha and Omega: The first and last letters respectively of the Greek alphabet (A and Ω) Metaphorically, God, ie, the “first and last,” from Revelations (1:8), “’I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,’ saith the Lord.”
Alkahest: A substance sought by Medieval alchemists believed capable of dissolving anything. Why would anyone search for such a thing? What would you keep it in?
Alphabet: The letters of a language arranged in an established order. From alpha+beta, the first two letters of the Greek alphabet.
Coming November 30th, the RETURN OF THE STOOPID CONTEST!
