Ascender (typography)

Home > Glossary

In typography, an ascender is the portion of a minuscule letter in a Latin-derived alphabet that extends above the mean line of a font. That is, the part of a lower-case letter that is taller than the font’s x-height.

Ascenders, together with descenders, increase the legibility of words. For example, British road signs no longer use all capital letters due to ascenders.
