In the cases of the three historical sibilant letters below, the correspondence between Phoenician and Ancient Greek is less clear, with apparent mismatches both in letter names and sound values. The early history of these letters (and the fourth sibilant letter, obsolete san) has been a matter of some debate. Here too, the changes in the pronunciation of the letter names between Ancient and Modern Greek are regular. The Latin alphabet, together with various other ancient scripts in Italy, adopted from an archaic form of the Greek alphabet brought to Italy by Greek colonists in the late 8th century BC, via Etruscan; In the polytonic orthography traditionally used for ancient Greek and katharevousa, the stressed vowel of each word carries one of three accent marks: either the acute accent ( ά), the grave accent ( ὰ), or the circumflex accent ( α̃ or α̑). These signs were originally designed to mark different forms of the phonological pitch accent in Ancient Greek. By the time their use became conventional and obligatory in Greek writing, in late antiquity, pitch accent was evolving into a single stress accent, and thus the three signs have not corresponded to a phonological distinction in actual speech ever since. In addition to the accent marks, every word-initial vowel must carry either of two so-called "breathing marks": the rough breathing ( ἁ), marking an /h/ sound at the beginning of a word, or the smooth breathing ( ἀ), marking its absence. The letter rho (ρ), although not a vowel, also carries rough breathing in a word-initial position. If a rho was geminated within a word, the first ρ always had the smooth breathing and the second the rough breathing (ῤῥ) leading to the transliteration rrh.The Greek alphabet was created by the Greeks during the Iron Age after the collapse of Linear B. the syllabic script was used for writing Mycenaean Greek until the Greek dark age and Late Bronze Age collapse. Later it was modified and changed to what we know today as the Greek alphabet. Newton, B. E. (1968). "Spontaneous gemination in Cypriot Greek". Lingua. 20: 15–57. doi: 10.1016/0024-3841(68)90130-7.

The Old Nubian language of Makuria (modern Sudan) adds three Coptic letters, two letters derived from Meroitic script, and a digraph of two Greek gammas used for the velar nasal sound. It is also featured in logos of many companies such as Omega Watches SA and Pioneer as well as the famous action-adventure video game God of War (2018). As for the origin of the Greek alphabet, the earliest written examples of the Greek alphabet are found on the Linear B tablets found in the palace at Knossos. These tablets are from around the beginning of the 8th century BC. However, they do not seem to represent the entire alphabet but rather only the portion of the Greek alphabet that was used in Crete. Many uses of the letter Sigma are Greek names. The omega symbol is used to denote the Omega constant, Chaitlin’s constant, solid angles, angular velocity and Omega baryons among many other things in different areas of science.

It is often used to represent angular velocity, sometimes lowercase omega symbol (ω), sometimes capitalized. In science, a lowercase omega symbol is often used to represent angular frequency. I knew straight away within the first chapter this was going to be a great read. These are the type of novels I love.

This book made me cry (a lot), but also made me giggle at times and smile (a lot!). I absolutely LOVED it and can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s an excellent debut novel and I look forward to reading more by Emma Cowell in the not-too-distant future, I hope.

The letter sigma, in standard orthography, has two variants: ς, used only at the ends of words, and σ, used elsewhere. The form ϲ (" lunate sigma", resembling a Latin c) is a medieval stylistic variant that can be used in both environments without the final/non-final distinction. In my opinion, this could have been a five-star book except for three things: (1) too much concentration on her mother’s funeral at the beginning of the book and (2) too much concentration on her BFF’s fertility treatment and discussions about miscarriages throughout the book and (3) Sophie’s choice to change her return flight to Methoni. I believe a paragraph or two would have sufficed and readers would still understand that Sophie was grieving. I failed to see the connection between Tasha and her IVF treatments to the main plot of the missing painting and Sophie’s experiences in Greece. Yes, the friends were united in their struggle to start a family, but such a large part of the story didn’t need to be dedicated to this struggle. Frankly, I skipped these sections. They did not add to the plot nor propel it forwards. They actually took away from the main action. Finally, I was disappointed in Sophie’s prioritization when one of the most important decisions of her life was on the line.
