    Margin , clusters,and nucleus

    Hi.


    Is margin always a consonant and Is nucleus always a vowel? if so , why don't we name margin a consonant and nucleus a vowel?

    What are consonantal clusters?

    Re: Margin , clusters,and nucleus

    A vowel is one of the letters a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y. The word vowel is also used to describe the various sounds represented by these letters, either alone or in combination. Margin is a word that has two vowels (a and i) in it.

    A consonant is a letter that is not a vowel. We use this rather strange way of defining consonant because y is sometimes a vowel (as in my, system, and happy) and sometimes a consonant (as in yes, you, and yellow). Nucleus is a word that has 4 consonants and 3 vowels.

    A consonant cluster, consonant sequence or consonant compound is a group of consonants which have no intervening vowel. You can read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consonant_cluster
