  • Interesting fact: Southbridge, Massachusetts, makes it illegal to read books or newspapers after 8 p.m. in the streets.
    • m The thirteenth letter and tenth consonant in the English alphabet. It had a corresponding position in the Latin and Greek alphabets, and in their source, the Phenician. The conspectus of forms in these three alphabets, with the Egyptian characters from which many believe the M to be derived (see A), is as follows: M represents a labial nasal sound, the corresponding nasal to b and p, as n to d and t, and ng to g and k. That is to say, in its production the lips are pressed together, or form a mute closure, as in p and b, and the vocal chords are set in sonant vibration, as in b; but the passage from the pharynx into the nose is open, so that the tone rings in the nasal as well as in the oral cavity, and this gives the peculiar quality which we term nasal. (See nasal.) Since the nose is incapable of complete closure (except by external means, as the fingers), the sound thus produced is resonant and continuable, and hence m and n are ordinarily reckoned as semivocal, or liquid, or the like. But m does not win, like n, an actual vowel value in English syllabication; though in vulgar pronunciation words like elm, spasm, etc., are sometimes resolved into el-um, spazum, etc. The sound m, especially as initial, is a very stable element in Indo-European language-history: compare mean, mind, Latin mens, Greek μενος, Sanskrit √ man; or mother, oldest traceable form mātar (compared with the altered father, brother, oldest pātar, bhrātar). M has no varieties of pronunciation, and is silent only in a few foreign words, as mnemonic; it is doubled under the same circumstances as the consonants in general, as in dimmer, dimming, dimmed, etc., from dim.
