Silent Letters and Talking Holes August 24, 2006

Posted by Myke Bartlett in CSC 2006 Classwork Archives.

Silent letters are letters that you can’t hear when you say the word,
but that are there when you write the word. They are commonly mispelled words with no fixed rules, so it’s worth spending time learning them.

Silent N Silent D Silent G Silent U
Autumn edge gnome guest
damn hedge gnarl guess
hymn Wednesday sign guitar
column handsome resign guard
handkerchief design building
badge foreigner guilty
wedge rogue

Silent H Silent T Silent K Silent B
what witch knife lamb
when fasten knee thumb
why castle knot numb
which watch knitting crumb
whether butcher know climbing
ghost scratch knob bomb
honest listen knock comb
hour match knickers doubt
while Christmas knuckle plumber
white mortgage knight limb
where soften knack debt
rhythm often knew tomb

Silent L Silent W
almond wren
palm wrote
yolk wrestling
calm wriggle
salmon wrinkle
calf sword
half whole
chalk wreck
talk two
walk wrap
folk wrong
