ASPECT: Speech Work

TOPIC: Consonants /k/ and /g/

Description of the Consonant /k/

To produce /k/, the back of the tongues makes contact with the velum. This contact results in a total blockage of the flow of air. The air pressure which builds up is suddenly released with an explosive sound. The glottis is open so that the vocal cords do not vibrate as /k/ is produced. This consonant, which is a voiceless sound, has many spelling symbols as shown below:

“k”   as in king, ken, keep, kit

“c”   as in coat, case, across, car

“cc” as in account, accuse, accost, accord

“ch” as in chemistry, chemical, school, ache

“q”   as in liquor, queen, quick, marque

“ck” as in back, sack, lack, peck

‘’x’’ as in six, anxious, axe, axis

The “k” is usually not pronounced when it is used before “n”.
