Gordon, The Letter Names of the Latin Alphabet (University of California Press, 1973; volume 9 of University of California Publications: Classical Studies), part III: “Summary of the Ancient Evidence”, page 32: "Clearly there is no question or doubt about the names of the vowels A, E, I, O, U. They are simply long A, long E, etc. (ā, ē, ī, ō, ū). Nor is there any uncertainty with respect to the six mutes B, C, D, G, P, T. Their names are bē, cē, dē, gē, pē, tē (each with a long E). Or about H, K, and Q: they are hā, kā, kū—each, again, with a long vowel sound."

Usage notes[edit]

  • The older strong conjugation (giva, giver) is complete with present and past participles. The weak conjugation (ge, ger) does not provide acceptable forms for the past tense (*gedde) or participles (*geende, *gedd), but is now the preferred and dominating choice for other cases (ge, ger, gett).
