The seventh letter and the fifth consonant of the English alphabet. It has two sounds; one hard or close, as before a, o, u, l, and r, as in gave, got, gut, glue, grow; and the other soft, like the letter j, before e and i, as gem and gibbet; though in a few words of German origin it is sounded hard before e and i, as in get and begin; and generally when the g is doubled, as in dagger, &c. It is silent in some words, as benign, condign. As a numeral, G was anciently used to denote 400, and, with a dash over it, 40,000. In music, it is the mark of the treble clef; and, from its being placed at the head, or marking the first sound in Gnido's scale, the whole scale took the name gamut, from gamma, the Greek name of the letter.

The seventh letter find the fifth consonant of the English alphabet, has two soundsâ€”one simple (called the hard sound) as in gave, go, gull; the other compound, like that of j (called the soft sound), being nearly equivalent to dzh, as in gem, gin, gyve, dingy. As a numeral it denotes 400, and with a dash 40,000. As an abbreviation it stands for grand, as in G. C. B., Grand Cross of the Bath, or for gratia, as in e. g., exempli gratia, by way of example. G is the name of the fifth tone of the natural or model scaleâ€”called also sol. It was also originally used as the treble clef. (G sharp) is a tone intermediate between G and A.
