can u tell me ck cluster which letter is unvoicecd either c or k ?
It is important to remember that letters are never voiced or unvoiced: Letters spell sounds, and it is the sounds that are voiced or unvoiced. So the letters <ck> spell the sound [k], and the sound [k] is unvoiced, in contrast with its partner sound [g], which is voiced. You have to think of the letters <ck> as a single spelling unit that is spelling an unvoiced sound.
