10:00AM - Great Courses
Platform: Zoom

This week, Professor McWhorter completes the story of our alphabet. In Lecture 15, Meditations on M, D, X, and T, he engages with a set of letters that have entangled origins. Beginning with the straightforward origins of “M” and how it led to the creation of the letter “D,” we then take a similar journey to look at the relationship of “T” and “X.” Close with a consideration of why the letters of the alphabet are in the order that we know today.
Finally, Lecture 16 answers the question, How Did Punctuation Develop? Since the spread of writing and literacy created the need for a tool that could help readers better comprehend what they were reading, McWhorter brings the course to a close with a look at punctuation. Consider why commas, periods, semicolons, question marks, and other symbols developed and how they became an integral part of modern writing systems.
We will devote time to discussion following each lecture.
Questions about the lectures can be directed to Saul Rapkin .
