Language – Letter Sounds

Today's featured recipe is Jicama Chick-ama.  Jicama is a crunchy root vegetable and is pronounced "hick' a ma"  (which is why we decided to rhyme it with chicken in our recipe).

Can you think of other words in which the letter 'j' sounds more like the letter 'h'?  How about words in which the letter 'g' sounds more like the letter 'j'?  (Gypsy comes to my mind.)

Letter sounds

Wouldn't it be easier if each letter had only one sound?

Corrugated paper has the strength of triangles.
