The letters c and k can both be used to express the sound /k/.
These letters can be pronounced as:
- cat, clock, cost, crunchy, cut;
- topic, music, logic.
- kettle, kid, freaky;
- neck, back, clock.
The use of both letters depends on their position in the word.
- We use c:
- before letters a, l, o, r, u;
- at the end of words.
- We use k:
- before the letters e, i, y;
- at the end of the words after c.
