Stay calm, cool and collected! Within the 26 letters of the English alphabet, there are some letters that are used more than others. While you could expect to find most of your vowels at the top of the list, it's not surprising that "X" and "Z" fall at the bottom. The letter "C" falls right in the middle of the most used letters, but even without the top spot, you can expect that there are thousands upon thousands of words that begin with the letter. When given a word, can you pick the correct "C" synonym?
Samuel Morse is credited with the creation of Morse code. In order to figure out the most effective way to do this, he researched and made a chart of the most frequently used letters in the English alphabet. "E" came in first, with "T" a close second. They were followed by "A," "I," "N," "O" and "S." In this chart, "C" came in 13th. While you might be wondering how "C" could fall behind letters like "H," Morse's list was just for the frequency of letters, not for coming at the beginning of a word.
You could probably name dozens of "C" words off the top of your head, but can you think of them as synonyms? There's only one way to find out!
