In this topic we are going to look at the consonant sounds /k/, /v/, /n/, /ŋ/

i.   /k/ as in king, miscarry, unique

Consider its various spellings.

c – cat, cave, come, coin

cc – tobacco, occur, accord, account

ch – chemist, chasm, character, school, catechism

ck – sick, lack, bucket, trick

k – kiss, monkey, take

qu – quick, request, conquest, liquor, quay

x(ks) – taxi, six, next, axe

Note that the letter ‘k’ is silent in kneel, know, knowledge, knight, knee, knit

ii.  /v/ as in vote, review, save

The sound is often spelt with the letter ‘v’ except in the words of nephew, and Stephen

iii. /n/ as in now, surname, crown

The sound /n/ is always spelt with the ‘n’ and the letter is always pronounced except where ‘n’ comes after ‘m’ in a word. Some examples are: condemn, hymn, damn, column, solemn.

iv. /ŋ/ as in bank /bæŋk/, sing /siŋ/

This sound does not occur at the beginning of words. It is usually realized in the letter ‘n’ when it is spelt together with the letter ‘k’. Some examples are: sink, sinker, think, drink, rank, link.

The sound /ŋ/ is also pronounced where the letters ‘ng’ occur together in a word. Examples are: wing, ring, fang, song, anger, hunger, stronger.
