Silent letters are letters in words that are not uttered but have a significant impact on the meaning. It's crucial to know these silent letters because they appear in 60 percent of English words. For instance, the word knife has a silent letter k. Knife is how we say it.
Some letters become quiet when pronounced in English after their spellings were determined. Experts believe that around 60% of English words have silent letters today. If you just utilised the letters that made sounds, the word "knife" could be spelt "nif."
When the letter 'k' comes before the letter 'n' at the beginning of a word, such as 'know,' it becomes silent. Even though the 'k' is silent (we don't say 'cah-noh'), the word 'know' is not pronounced the same way as 'now.' 'Know' is the same as 'noh.'
A silent letter—a term used informally in English pronunciation—is a letter or letter combination of the alphabet that is frequently not uttered in a word. The b in subtle, the c in scissors, the g in design, the t in listen, and the gh in thinking are all examples.
When a word is pronounced, silent letters are letters that do not correspond to any sound. Silent vowels and silent consonants exist. Silent letters can be used to distinguish homophones (words that sound the same but have different spellings). Some silent letters reveal information about a word's origin.
