English silent letters
Silent letters are the ones which appear in the spelling of the word but you don’t pronounce them.
One of the notorious difficulties of English spelling and pronunciation is silent letters. And we have a lot of those! As a matter of fact, only 5 of the 21 English consonants cannot happen to be silent letters! These are F, J, Q, V and Y.
