i need the letter m silent words
There are very few cases of <m>’s that could be treated as silent. All that I know of occur in the <mn> spelling, which comes from Greek, and both the <m> and the <n> would have been pronounced back then. Some come from the name of the Greek goddess of memory, Mnemosyne: mnemonic, mnemotechnical, mneme, mnestic, mnemic.. A few come from the Greek word for “moss”: mniaceae, mnioid, mniotiltidae, mnium. Remember about possible derived forms here.
