Introduction to Slovak alphabet or "abeceda"

The printed and written Slovak alphabet or "letters"  are basically the same in Slovak as their counterparts in English, that being the Latin Alphabet.  Where they differ is that Slovak letters have the so-called diacritical mark (diacritics) above or to the right side of the letter which changes the phonetics or sound  quality of the letter.  This section will introduce both the written and printed version of the letter as well as give examples of how the letter is properly called, sounded out and an English equivalent of that sound.
