Is the fourth letter of the English alphabet, and the third consonant. It is a dental articulation, formed by placing the tip of the tongue against the fore part of the palate, and nearly approaches in sound to the letter T. It has but one sound, and is never quiescent in English words. As a numeral D represents 500, and when a dash or stroke is placed over it it denotes 5,000.
