为什么有些字母开头的单词少?

最近忙英语四级考试,看单词表时突然想到:为什么有些字母开头的单词少?

小学开始学英语就知道不同字母开头的单词数量不一样甚至差很远,但从没问过为什么。这次又发挥我的不常识精神了……

jkxyz开头的单词都很少。因为这些字母难看?难写?难读?对比下拥有最多单词的s(包括我snowyy都是s开头^_^):s圆滑有曲线美,易写,s音易发……所以它最受欢迎?

嘛,这又是个搜不到答案的问题,看来网络真不能解答我很多疑问,是时候看书充电了……

    呢个问题我好早都有林过,不过都是无答案。可能是因为字母都有分“血统”呱。哈哈,乱林既。

    回mountain:哇,好早就想过,厉害啊!血统?有意思!

    回yuchea:又被赞了,脸红一下*_*这里是“不常识”嘛,发现不常识是我的责任呢,虽然还要多多培养!

    回小蔚同学:好夺目!

    我个人认为

    J所带出的辅音 不是爆破音 不方便拉丁语系发音所以单词少

    K的发音很多被同样作用的C 抢走了

    X ,Y 和 Z发音都不是一个单一音节 比如X是埃克斯 所以不如单音节来和其他字母拼来的实在 如 ba ma

    为了更方便发音 所以难发音的单词就少了 呵呵 抛砖引玉中
