Well, declare("xyz", alphabetic) tells the parser to accept
characters x y and z as elements of a symbol.
However declare("$", alphabetic) doesn't seem to have the
desired effect, probably because the $ expression terminator
is hard wired into the parser.
I wonder why you want to have symbols begin with $.
It might be reasonable, but there might be another way to get
the effect you want.
