Wikipedia

The Latin (also called Roman) script was initially developed to write in Latin language. Today, it is used in most modern languages as the main writing system. It is also used as romanization to represent languages originally without writing system or written in other scripts.

Letters

The basic modern Latin alphabet is composed of 26 letters, each having an upper case and a lower case form. (ex.: upper case A and lower case a) Two or more letters may be joined in single glyphs, forming ligatures. (ex.: the letters a and e joined together form æ) Finally, diacritics may be added to letters or ligatures. (ex.: an acute accent may be added to the letter o, forming ó)

Alphabets

Alphabets based on Latin script may be formed by single letters and digraphs, with or without diacritics.

This list should include all alphabets that use Latin script, in their respective alphabetic orders.

Comments about letter order, obsolete letters, letters used only in foreign words and additional scripts of the language should also be provided here. More specific information, such as transcriptions of sounds and names of letters, should be found at each appendix linked to the respective language name.
