    Default What is hard consonant, soft consonant

    There is this thing called hard consonant, soft consonant. What does it mean? What letters are hard consonant and soft consonant?

    How do I know if a last name that starts with a hard consonant?
    How do I know if a name is ending in a vowel?

    I did google, but cannot find good information explaining it on english language.
