Let's find out if people have any preference for letters. This might shed some grim light on polls listing choices using letter indices, as they may affect respondents' responses. Here we go then.

What's you favourite latin letter?
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h
  • i
  • j
  • k
  • l
  • m
  • n

  • p
  • q
  • r
  • s

  • w
  • x

    I chose 'c'. Not because it's my favorite letter, but because the third choice listed is always my preferred.

      That's a fair point. But what do you choose when there are only two possibilities?

        Still 'c'.

      Reminds me of the "abacab" approach to multiple-choice exams that you failed to study for. Just keep picking answers in that order. Also an 80's album from Genesis.

    • The first available not-yet-used single letter variable. (starting with $c as $a and $b are magic)
    • The first letter of today, whatever it happens to be
    • The first letter of the data type. If it is already in use, use a capital letter
    • I have a random letter picker program for that (shurtcut key available in my IDE)
    • I pick a Unicode character, just to make it hard for others

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
