Daily grind---

Right this second, at work, I'm entering in a series of tests for little kiddies in a literacy program. There's one data field that bothers me, really bothers me:

Current Letter Recognition:

Number of Letters Known: _____ / 54

That is all.

Well, being generous:

26 upper case. 26 lower case.

plus, I dunno.. . and $, maybe?

My first guess--
Esperanto. Lots of diacriticals.

I'm pretty sure that the US government is printing a deck of cards (with jokers) for the top letters and symbols on the hit list...

In Ye Olde computer days, keyboard layouts weren't very standard. On the C64, for example, the qoute mark (there was only a double one) was on the same key as '6'. In one of the computer enthusiast mags, one father wrote about a report from a teacher about his son--another user of his C64 home computer--who was reading from a book in front of class. He came to a sentance in which a character spoke, paused, and then read. '...and then he said, shift 6, hello there, shift 6, to the other person...'

I think that since I now know pronunciations for !, *, # and $ that I could see myself making a case for them being letters.
