DISK 103.

To complicate things, sometimes the letter H immediately follows the double brick S C to keep the "skuh" sound before I or E, as in:

scheme * schism * school * schooner

In the word schism we meet the S M double brick, and the letter combination I S M, pronounced as "-ism", a commonly used suffix on the ends of words.

Technically the letter H in the words "school" and "schooner" isn't necessary because there is no E or I after the H, but these are simply more "odd spellings" to be learned - and an example of "rules being broken".

Your turn to read the words on this disk:

(pause) Yes, they are:

scheme * schism * school * schooner
