History of Letter G

The letter ‘G’ was introduced in the Old Latin period as a variant of ‘C’ to distinguish voiced /ɡ/ from voiceless /k/. The recorded originator of ‘G’ is freedman Spurius Carvilius Ruga, the first Roman to open a fee-paying school, who taught around 230 BC. At this time, ‘K’ had fallen out of favor, and ‘C’, which had formerly represented both /ɡ/ and /k/ before open vowels, had come to express /k/ in all environments.

Ruga’s positioning of ‘G’ shows that alphabetic order related to the letters’ values as Greek numerals was a concern even in the 3rd century BC. According to some records, the original seventh letter, ‘Z’, had been purged from the Latin alphabet somewhat earlier in the 3rd century BC by the Roman censor Appius Claudius, who found it distasteful and foreign.[2] Sampson (1985) suggests that: “Evidently the order of the alphabet was felt to be such a concrete thing that a new letter could be added in the middle only if a ‘space’ was created by the dropping of an old letter.

Hempl (1899) proposes that there never was such a “space” in the alphabet and that in fact ‘G’ was a direct descendant of zeta. Zeta took shapes like ⊏ in some of the Old Italic scripts; the development of the monumental form ‘G’ from this shape would be exactly parallel to the development of ‘C’ from gamma. He suggests that the pronunciation /k/ > /ɡ/ was due to contamination from the also similar-looking ‘K’.

Eventually, both velar consonants /k/ and /ɡ/ developed palatalized allophones before front vowels; consequently in today’s Romance languages, ⟨c⟩ and ⟨g⟩ have different sound values depending on context (known as hard and soft C and hard and soft G). Because of French influence, English orthography shares this feature.

How are children benefitted by coloring pages?
Children will be spending most of their time inside the house as it becomes too chilly to venture outside. Sitting at home an idle brain will eventually become a devil’s workshop. So to stop it parents can plan activities that will keep the children entertained and educate them at the same time. Activities like story telling, cartoon movies teaching moral values and coloring pages will help children think and shape their young minds as well. Coloring pages is the simplest of activities to activate a child’s imagination and make him think about his choices. Children can color pages on their own choosing colors of their own choice which means that they actually imagine the color on the paper before picking the crayon or brush to color the page. This activates their creative and mental ability to imagine a thing before finishing it.
Why chose Coloring Pages?
Give the child a toy and he will break it, give the child a riding toy and he might crash it. Coloring pages has many benefits because it keeps the child confined to a single space and keeps him busy. At the same time the child is also learning to draw and color. Coloring pages has been scientifically proven to have helped children to learn to focus and concentrate on a single activity for longer period which slowly calms down the hyperactivity of the brain. Children with ADHD disorder have benefitted from this activity a lot. As explained before, coloring pages activates the imaginative part of the brain and the child consciously makes choices with what colors need to be used to complete his picture. Here the child learns to choose colors by logic when parents help him by saying that the color of the sky is usually blue. The child will then color the sky blue after recording the fact that he has seen the sky in blue color everyday. So a sense of logic is imbedded in the thinking process. Coloring pages can also be a group activity with children learning to share their colors and ideas with each other. This enables them to socialize and share with each other easily.
What types of Coloring Pages are available?
The traditional way of learning to color pages was to draw and then color however in this day and age children have drawing books with pre-drawn pictures that they can color. Another option is to print coloring pages from websites that offer free coloring pages to be downloaded. This option is better because one can find a range of pictures of every category suitable for kids of all ages from 1 to 12 years. There are pictures of famous cartoons like Mickey Mouse, action heroes like Superman, fairies and villains, landscape paintings and even Alphabets for toddlers to color. It costs nothing and choices are plenty. They also make great holiday gifts. So this season make sure the kids use sometime to let their creative juices flow and color pages for fun.
