Silent letters

There are many words with silent letters in English and this is difficult for many students to remember. I hear there is a language called French that has even more words with silent letters. That must be hard.


The ‘c’ in “muscle” is silent.

In “knife”, the ‘k’ is silent (and it’s an irregular plural too “knives”).

The ‘h’ in “stomach” is silent.

The ‘w’ in “answer” is silent.

And remember the ‘l’ in “should” is silent.
