    Having just finished a rather intense semester of Greek, I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same or similar experiences I have had.

    The letter "n" strangely starts to look and sound like an eta.

    The letter "n" also strangely starts to be replaced with a "v."

    Non-cursive lowercase "a" seems to acquire a distinctive set of tails on the right side.

    Epsilon creeps up instead of "e".

    The lowercase "i" starts to lose its dot.

    Lowercase "k" loses a bit of height.

    Words like "roast" want to look more like "poast."

    "S" begins to look like final sigma.

    "t" loses its top point.

    "X" starts to drag below the line and becomes a bit more curvy.

    "w" makes you want to say O!
