Day 80: 5 Minute Freewrite: Sunday - Prompt: parachuted

in freewrite •  3 months ago

Have you learned your English phonograms (pictures that represent sounds)?

Most all of us know a-z sounds. You know that some of the letters have multiple sounds.

What about other combinations. Take the word "parachutes." as an example. This word contains one phonogram that has two letter, which can make one of three sound - "ch," "k," or "sh." In this word, the "ch" makes a "sh" sound.

Chief has the same double letter phonogram. Again, the "ch" is pronounced "sh."

Now that you are on a role, say this word out loud - check.

How much easier would it be to spell and read when you can see the phonograms before you. The sounds will vary from word to word but the phonograms remain the same.

Be honest. Did I get you with the last "ch" word? haha

Thanks for the random support.

Look at you - an English lesson!!! :)

Ya. I really wish I would have learned these phonograms in my formative years. I get so mad at the fact that most of us who were schooled haven't learned the basics of writing and spelling. I need to let it go I suppose.

I kind of enjoy that Americans are not as snobbish about spelling like Germans are. And apps like Gramarly help a lot :)
