G is a common letter that we come across on a daily basis. The most common words that start with G are girl, gym, get, and gorgeous. A lot of other words also contain this letter, such as ‘language,’ ‘egg,’ ‘angle,’ and ‘jug,’ are a few examples of such words.
However, the letter G is most commonly used to end verbs used in the simple present tense. For example, swimming, eating, or sleeping.
In general, the letter G has two different kinds of sounds. To help children understand, make them read out these two words out loud: fringe and finger.
Children will automatically notice the difference in sounds that G makes. Since both kinds of sounds are quite common, it helps children understand that they can’t pronounce G without any rule.
According to the basic pronunciation rule associated with the letter G, the G sound mostly depends on the letter that follows it. When the letter after G is I, E, or Y, G will be pronounced as /J/, also known as the soft ‘g’ sound.
So, when you say words that start with g, such as ‘gel’, g will make a sound similar to the ‘juh’ sound of the letter J.
For other words such as ‘grudge’ or ‘girl,’ you have to use the ‘hard’ G sound. You will use the hard g sound whenever words start with G, except for when the next letter is I, E or Y.
Remember that the rule applies even if the g is somewhere in the middle of the word. For words that end with G, the letter g will retain its ‘hard sound’: the /G/ sound.
Identify whether the following words that start with G make the hard or soft G sound. Some of them can be exceptions to the rule as well. Let’s see if you can also identify the rule-breaking words.
