I'm asked to give how many letters, syllables and sounds are in the following words with one example given.
eg: key- 3 letters, 1 syllable and 2 sounds /ki:/
vegetable, letter, word, rhythm, tomato, flattery, organisation, chocolate.
I have no problems with the number of letters and syllables, however I don't know how to figure out the number of sounds.
If someone could explain it to me it would be greatly appreciated.
