consonant letters

A. The Alphabet is composed of vowel letters and consonant letters. The vowels are a, e, i, o, and u, and
sometimes y. (The letters r, l, and w frequently affect how vowels are sounded: The a is sounded
differently in car, call, or caw as compared with cat.) The consonants are easier; let’s deal with them
first. s is a letter; /s/ is a sound.

b: bat

c: cat (c =/k/)
cent (before e, i,
or y, c = /s/)

d: dog

f: fat

g: gun (g = /g/)
gem (before e, i,
or y, g - /j/)

j: jet

k: kit

l: log

m: mat

n: nap

p: pan

q(u): quit (qu = /kw/)
mystique (qu = /k/)

r: run

s: sat (s = /s/)

t: tag

v: vat

w: win

x: box (x = /ks/)
xylophone (x = /z/)

y: yes

z: zebra
