英文縮寫.. NO.

大家相信都知道

NO.

的意義..

就是"號碼"的縮寫.

問題來了..號碼的英文是 number

照理來說縮寫裡的字應該和原字有關聯

n 我知道是開頭的..

但是"o"是從哪來的呢??

知道這題我送20啦!!!

因為英文老師也不知道..

知道的人....利害..

    The Numero sign (U+2116) is used in many languages to indicate ordinal numbering. For example, instead of "Number 12 Privet Drive", one could write "№ 12 Privet Drive".The symbol is a combination of the Latin letter "N" with a grapheme resembling the masculine ordinal indicator (or superscript "o", sometimes underlined).On typewriters and computers that do not support this symbol, it is acceptable and commonplace to substitute it with the trigraph "No." (letter "N", letter "o", and a period).這是我從Wikipedia所節錄下來的,大意是說No.這個自原來的N所代表的是拉丁文的數字numero這個字, 而o 所代表的是ordinal indicator,它是一個表達序數的符號,通常都以o加字下線來表示(o), No 就是用來表達數字多少的一個代稱,但是早期的打字機或是現在電腦的鍵盤上並沒有o這種符號,所以只好用o加句點的方式來表達,也就是我們現在所看到的No.了!!
