Just letters, not a translatable term


Explanation:
The official web site of Delta Tau Delta (http://www.delts.org/) gives a fascinating history of Greek-letter fraternities, but nowhere does it mention a rhyme or reason why particular letters were selected for each fraternity. Perhaps it was just to add to the mystique of the phenomenon.

I hope this answers your question.
