The sixth letter of the Latin alphabet, F developed from the digraph FH that stood for /f/.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z

The Etruscans were the inventors of this digraph; F on its own stood for /w/ in Etruscan as in Greek (where the letter F ? called Digamma in Greek ? has disappeared due to the fact that the /w/ phoneme itself disappeared.) The origin of F is the Semitic letter ww that also represented /w/ and originally probably represented a hook or a club.

Foxtrot represents the letter F in the NATO phonetic alphabet.
