What am I?
- I will never be written, that surely would be impossible.
- For thousands of years I was unused for practical purposes.
- Reputedly the Irish invented me?
- Nowadays I am often literally omitted – which can lead to embarrassment.
- You may see me as part of a crossword answer – then again you wouldn’t.
- The English use me after; the French before and after.
- I appear three times in the title.
