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.
