It’s Greek to Me!

Recently I looked at the Greek alphabets more keenly. I need to know them myself clearly before teaching them to Sakura.😉 I was reminded that there exists such a keyboard prepared by Him. It works with Shift & Ctrl+Alt combinations to get the small & capital letters in Greek. The mapping is below:

 a α b β c χ d δ e ε f φ g γ h η i ι j ψ k κ l λ m μ n o o p π q θ r ρ s σ t τ u v ν w ω x ξ y υ z ζ

The keyboard layout of the same is:

Now that I was looking at things keenly, I realized the Greek alphabets could be made to match the English ones more closely and I made one on my own which looks like:

 a α b β c χ d δ e ε,η f φ g γ h i ι j k κ l λ m μ n ν o o,ω p π q r ρ s σ,ψ t θ,τ u υ v w x ξ y z ζ

I know the above is not a one-to-one mapping but it ‘sounds’ all right to me.😊

See you tomorrow!
