Do you wanna improve your knowledge of English phonology? Well, I've decided to focus on this multigraph in this lesson. C'mon.

English Multigraph "Ik"

The two consonants 'l' and 'k' make a digraph 'lk'. In this lesson, we will learn about its sounds.

Digraphs are a set of two letters that stand together and produce a new sound.

Digraph lk
Name lk (pronounced /ˈel ˈkay/)
Sound(s) /k/, /lk/

The Digraph 'lk'

Sound 1: /k/

'lk' always at the end of a word sounds /k/ if it is preceded by 'o' or 'a':

walk /wɑːk/

talk /tɑːk/

'lk' after 'a'

folk /foʊk/

'lk' after 'o'

yolk /joʊk/

stalk /stɑːk/

Sound 2: /lk/

'lk' before 'e', 'i' or 'u' sounds /lk/:
