From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   M \M\ ([ecr]m).
      1. M, the thirteenth letter of the English alphabet, is a
            vocal consonant, and from the manner of its formation, is
            called the labio-nasal consonant. See Guide to
            Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 178-180, 242.
      Note: The letter M came into English from the Greek, through
               the Latin, the form of the Greek letter being further
               derived from the Ph[oe]nician, and ultimately, it is
               believed, from the Egyptian. Etymologically M is
               related to n, in lime, linden; emmet, ant; also to b. M
               is readily followed by b and p. the position of the
               lips in the formation of both letters being the same.
               The relation of b and m is the same as that of d and t
               to n. and that of g and k to ng.
      2. As a numeral, M stands for one thousand, both in English
            and Latin.
