Can you help me ..when I say to c "k" and c "s" ...l hope you understand
of course! you mean a soft C (s) or a hard C (k)
I'll give you examples of both.
Cook (hard C)
Cesspool (Soft C)
Celebrate (Soft C)
Calendar (Hard C)
Calibrate (Hard C)
Each word corresponds with a vowel in this instance. Is there anything outstanding you can notice?
This is a pronunciation/writing rule borrowed directly from French.
ca, co, cu = ka, ko, k(y)u (capable, company, occupy)
(The y sound you might hear before u comes from the difference between the French u and the English u... but that's another story!)
ci, ce, cy = si, se, sy (precision, certainly, bicycle)
Of course, this basically applies to loanwords from French - there are many of them in English!
That was a really clear answer Stephanie with excellent examples. I can do no better
I think first link at the following website will help you:
You might read over it with a language partner.
Yah I mean that:) Thanks Stephanie
