  • 4th letter of the Greek alphabet. Derived from the Phoenician letter 'Dalet' (meaning 'door' or maybe 'fish'!) River deltas are called that because of the uppercase delta (Δ) which is shaped like a river delta.

  • Gamma is the 3rd letter of the Greek alphabet. Derived from the Phonecian 'Gimel' (meaning 'camel'). Gamma is equvilent to C or G in the modern alphabet (I think :D) and can be combined with other letters to make different sounds. Used in nuclear physics for gamma radiation.

  • Beta is the second letter of the Greek alphabet. Is derived from the Phoenician letter 'Beth' (meaning 'house'). In Ancient Greek the name was spelt Βήτα and the modern English name (beta)is derived from how it was pronounced. In mathematics and physics it is used to talk about beta particles and radition.

  • Derived from the Phoenician letter Aleph, the Greek alpha was the first in their alphabet. Alpha is usually used to mean 'first'. In Phoenician, alpha meant 'ox'. (uppercase Α, lowercase α)
