The Letter C

The-Letter-CThe letter C often sounds like the letter K and makes the sound heard in the words cat, cake, across and music. This consonant sound ranks in the common category along with its counterpart the letter D. The combination of the letters C and K also make the /k/ sound, e.g., back, sick & rock. When letter C precedes an E, I or Y, it often sounds like the letter S e.g., cell, city and fancy.

The letter C makes a variety of sounds. It is most commonly found sounding like the letter K (hard c); however, it frequently sounds like an S (soft c). It also makes the following sounds:

  • CH, e.g., children, pitcher, which and cello,
  • SH, e.g., ocean, magician and musician, and
  • Silent, e.g., scenic, scene & scent.

Exceptions: On a few rare occasions, the CH sounds like either the letter K or /sh/, e.g., character, anchor, chef and machine.
