    English has a lot of characters: Darth Vader, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Macbeth, Bart Simpson, Walter White... – curiousdannii Feb 4 '16 at 7:41
  • @curiousdannii Sorry, I'm not a native speaker, so I'm not sure what my question comes off like, but by "characters," I meant "letters" like alphabet. Isn't that obvious or is that just a friendly joke? Sorry if it was confusing, but I'm just surprised! Is jknappen voting down because my question seems like about fiction characters? – stacko Feb 4 '16 at 12:00
  • @stacko Your question is fine, no one would actually be confused about it, but it's still fun to joke sometimes :) – curiousdannii Feb 4 '16 at 12:03
  • @curiousdannii That's a relief! I thought that my question looked super strange or something. :) – stacko Feb 4 '16 at 12:09
