The Alphabet and the sounds
There are 26 letters in the English alphabet but more than 44 different
consonant and vowel sounds in speech.
We use the alphabet to make patterns and combinations.
The letter name is not the same as the letter sound and there
is no single letter sound. Each letter may have
a number of different sounds, especially in letter combinations.
