The names of the letters are rarely spelled out. Some compound words (e. g. , tee-shirt, deejay, emcee, okay, etc. ), derived forms (e. g. , exed out, effing, to eff and blind, aitchless, etc. ) and objects named after letters (e. g. , em in printing and wye in railroading) may be written with the letter names. The spellings listed below are from the Oxford English Dictionary. Plurals of consonant names are formed by adding -s (e. g. , bees, efs, ems) or -es in the cases of aitch, ess, and ex (i. e. , aitches, esses, exes). Plurals of vowel names add -es (i. e. , aes, ees, ies, oes, ues), but these are rare. Most commonly, the letter (generally in capitalized form) and not its name is used, in which case plurals just add -s.
