Idioms and Phrasal Verbs

Origin of x

  • X is prototypically pronounced [ks] in English; it therefore serves as a convenient shorthand for the digraphs (cs, ks, etc.) or trigraphs (cks etc.) that would otherwise represent that consonant cluster.

    From Wiktionary

  • From the French plural suffix -x.
