R Is The Letter Of The AlphabetPosted by Mike Schuck
The other letter in the alphabet is not J, K, or L but instead is an r! This may surprise you since we usually think of the capital “r” as being used to mean re-do, run, read, repeat, etc.
That is indeed what it means when it appears at the beginning of a word, but that isn't all it can be!
The lowercase r has its own meanings which are much more esoteric than people might realize. It does not require a full stop (period) nor do they need to be words, but they must make sense and be related to each other.
This article will go into detail about some cool uses for this mysterious little mark.
What is the national anthem of France?
The French do not have a nationally recognized song as their national anthems, but they do have one letter! The most well-known word in the country’s flag is “la légion étrangère.” This phrase translates to “The foreign legion.” Some people assume that this refers to soldiers from other countries, which would make sense since the Legion was originally for that purpose. However, it actually refers to all veterans of any nation or organization that has an army branch (for example, the British Legion, American Legion, etc.).
This doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone calls themselves a veteran, however. Only about half of all 18–25 year olds are considered veterans due to differences in how governments define the term.
What is the number 1 language in the world?
The lingua franca of the internet, chat rooms, social media, and email is probably one you use every day. It’s also the most widely spoken second language in the world!
That language is…Rundschrift!!!
Yep, that’s right – rundschrift means “running script” or “scripted handwriting.” And if you look at any piece of writing you will usually find some sort of running text underlined or set off as an aside (called indentation). This typically comes from either something said earlier in the article, or the writer introducing an idea or argument.
Running texts are important to writers because they help tell your reader what the author thinks about the topic, and how they feel about it.
What is the national sport of France?
Soccer! Or as we say in America, football. They call it le ballon rond (the round ball) because it looks like a balloon that you blow up for children to play with.
Roughly twenty-five years ago, someone figured out how to make this game way more exciting by adding goals to the field. A goal is an area of space where players can drop the ball and score a touchdown through brute force or by passing the ball into the net.
The most common way to add a goal to your soccer field is to build a wall made of nets and plastic sheeting – what people refer to as a fencing structure. This allows the balls to bounce off the walls and gives attackers a place to put the ball when they get close enough.
There are three main reasons why everyone loves the game of soccer. First, it is very accessible to anyone at any skill level. You do not need expensive equipment nor does it require much room to have a match. It is also quite physically demanding, which makes it a great workout. Last, but certainly not least, it is a lot of fun!
Soccer has become such a popular past time that now professional leagues exist around the world. The top league in North America is called Major League Soccer and was founded in 1993. There are twenty teams in each conference, making a total of forty teams per season.
What is the most famous painter in the world?
Pablo Picasso! He painted some incredible works, made many significant contributions to art, and left his mark on our culture for good.
He was not your average artist. He did not paint using natural materials such as oil or water paints that you can buy at any store. Instead he used thick layers of glaze which are thicker than normal oils and water colors and this gave his paintings an almost three-dimensional effect.
He also experimented with different styles and techniques, incorporating them into his own artistic expression. All these things contributed to making him one of the greatest artists of all time.
This article will talk about how to learn more about the painting style of Pablo Picasso and what makes his work special. His creative process and use of rich textures and shapes will be discussed along with some important points related to his artwork.
What is the most famous musician in the world?
The answer may surprise you – it’s not Michael Jackson, Beyoncé or Rihanna! The winner is actually someone no one would guess and that is Rodrigo Amós. He goes by his stage name, Rodríguez, which isn’t very catchy but I doubt that didn’t matter to him.
Rodrigo was born in 1985 in Uruguay. His father died when he was nine years old so he grew up with his mother and older brother. When he was sixteen, he moved to Brazil to live with his uncle. It wasn’t long before he started performing professionally as a guitarist.
He quickly made a name for himself within the Brazilian music scene and landed several supporting roles in soundtracks and feature films. In fact, one of his songs was used in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
In 2009, he released his first album as a solo artist and included the song “Ai Se Eu Forçar (If I Were To Force Myself)”, now known simply as ‘Força Aí’ (Force There). This song became particularly popular across Latin America and Spain and even entered the top ten in France.
Since then, his career has been on a constant rise. He has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music and received many award nominations and prizes.
What is the source of the Nile?
The most popular theory about the source of the River Nile is that it comes from an all-powerful, ancient deity named Amonasro. According to this story, Amonasro was the God who created the river in his image by taking water streaming down from heaven and channeling it towards Africa.
This myth goes on to say that one day, he decided to visit his own land and take a dip in his lake, just like anyone else would do after raining for days.
But instead of finding dry land, he found only water. Frustrated, he threw his spear into the lake, creating a ripple which carried him away!
The next thing you know, he’s throwing spears at Africa because she won’t give up her waters! But every time he throws his spear into the ocean, it floats back out again.
What is the average age of people in the world?
We could probably make an argument that Roman Empire was the most powerful civilization in history, at least during its peak. They conquered almost every major region in the known world, establishing their own empires and leaving legacies that are still seen today. Then they declined as one empire collapsed and another took over.
After them, European nations began to emerge as more independent kingdoms or republics. Now, we call these countries “states” because they have a leader who establishes rule over a specific area, similar to how Rome did. Some remain very close alliances while others fall into anarchy and chaos much like what happened with the Romans!
Another word for state is “country.” So, when you say someone’s country is “the best,” you mean it is the greatest in quality (like how France is considered the greatest food eater). The United States is often said to be a “good” nation due to our democratic system and free market economy. However, there is no clear definition of what makes something good so different people can give their opinion depending on their personal values.
What is the average age of people in the US?
The most common way to determine this is by counting how many years everyone was when they were born and adding it up! This means that we have to figure out how old every person was at the time of their birth, then add those numbers together to get an estimate for the average age.
Luckily, there are websites and apps that make this process easy. For example, you can use the free online tool Createdbyus.org to find your own estimated average age. Simply input your birth year (and state if necessary), and it will calculate the overall average for you!
Another way to find the national average is using Google or Amazon’s quick reference tools.
