and per se and

ampersand

We’ve made it through the #AtoZChallenge, and hopefully you enjoyed it as much as I did. But wait! There’s that 27th letter of the alphabet: &.

The ampersand is a ligature of the letters “e” and “t,” for the Latin word “et,” meaning “and.” The word “and,” displayed as &, used to be considered the final letter of the English alphabet. Wikipedia has an entry that tells all about it. I won’t attempt to go into it, because I would only confuse myself, and probably you as well. Interesting reading, though, if you’ve ever wondered about ampersands and such

In the spirit of being thorough in completing the #AtoZChallenge, I herewith offer my post for the 27th and (at one time) final letter of the English alphabet:

& so it began
& from A we went to Z
& ended with &

Now that’s really & truly the end.
