There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!)
It would generally be agreed by the throng of writers inhabiting planet Earth that we are absolutely in need of every letter of the alphabet.
I, for one, would be bereft should any one letter be banned. Such an action would be unconscionable. Even for an engaging exercise such as this, one needs to realize that every letter has its place and deserves to be accorded the respect earned over hundreds of years of general usage.
To arbitrarily ban one little letter for no reason at all is altogether ridiculous and downright hurtful.
What did the letter do to be cast out of its fraternity of fellow word conjurers?
Why, nothing! Nothing at all.
Yet one, for the purposes of this exercise, does indeed find itself on the sidelines. A rest. A break, if one were to look upon it with an eye to the positive.
Yes, let’s look at it that way.
One letter has been granted a leave of absence today.
Can you guess which one?
