    Hi
    I'm trying to understand your question but without success.
    Can you formulate a problem more clearly?
    S.M.

    The poster wants to know the rules for pronouncing those letters.
    ch as in character /k/
    ch as in church /tsh/
    ch as in champagne /sh/
    etc.

    I believe most of the words adopted from French produce sh sound in CH: chauvinist, chandelier, penchant, chauffeur, etc.
    The words that have to do with profession or science usually have k sound: archeologist, chemistry, architecture, chromosome, psychologist, etc.
    SC: Sh in foreign words: fascist, crescendo (Italian) ...

    I wonder if there is a firm rule to any of these cases. Even if there is, I bet we'll have to deal with lots of exceptions.
