The Letter S

The-Letter-SThe letter s makes the sound heard in the words see, also and yes. This consonant sound ranks in the very common category along with its counterpart the letter l. The letter s can also sound like the letter z, e.g., busy, please and was. In fact, the letter s makes the /z/ sound more often than the letter z.

The letter s can also result in the /sh/ sound, e.g., sugar and pressure. In addition, the letter s can make the /zh/ sound, e.g., measure and confusion. On rare occasions, the letter s is silent, e.g., island.
