1. (n.) O, the fifteenth letter of the English alphabet, derives its form, value, and name from the Greek O, through the Latin. The letter came into the Greek from the Phoenician, which possibly derived it ultimately from the Egyptian. Etymologically, the letter o is most closely related to a, e, and u; as in E. bone, AS. ban; E. stone, AS. Stan; E. broke, AS. brecan to break; E. bore, AS. beran to bear; E. dove; E. toft, tuft; tone, tune; number, F. nombre.

3. (n.) The letter O, or its sound.

4. (n.) Something shaped like the letter O; a circle or oval.

5. (n.) A cipher; zero.

6. (a.) One.
