What are the digraph & trigraph in English (with examples)
What are the digraph & trigraph in English (with examples)

A digraph
is a single sound, or phoneme, which is represented by two letters.

A trigraph
is a phoneme which consists of three letters. However, many people will
simply use the term 'digraph' generally to describe both combinations.





In
digraphs, consonants join together to form a kind of consonant team,
which makes a special sound. For instance, p and h combine to form ph,
which makes the /f/ sound as in phonemic.

When two or more
consonants appear together and you hear each sound that each consonant
would normally make, the consonant team is called a consonant blend.

For
instance, the word blend has two consonant blends: bl, for which you
hear the sounds for both b and l, and nd, for which you hear the sounds
for both n and d.

Digraphs:

ch, which makes the /ch/ sound as in watch, chick, chimpanzee, and champion

ck, which makes the /k/ sound as in chick

ff, which makes the /f/ sound as in cliff

gh, which makes the /g/ sound as in ghost and
ghastly

gn, which makes the /n/ sound as in gnome and gnarled

kn, which makes the /n/ sound as in knife and knight

ll, which makes the /l/ sound as in wall

mb, which makes the /m/ sound as in lamb and thumb

ng, which makes the /ng/ sound as in fang, boomerang, and fingerprint

nk, which makes the /nk/ sound as in ink, sink and rink

ph, which makes the /f/ sound as in digraph, phone, and phonics

qu, which makes the /kw/ sound as in quick

sh, which makes the /sh/ sound as in shore, shipwreck, shark, and shield

ss, which makes the /s/ sound as in floss

th, which makes the /th/ sound as in athlete, toothbrush, bathtub, thin, and thunderstorm

th, which makes the /th/ sound as in this, there, and that

wh, which makes the /hw/ sound as in where and which

wr, which makes the /wr/ sound as in write

zz, which makes the /z/ sound as in fuzz and buzz

Trigraphs:

chr, which makes the /chr/ sound as in chrome and chromosome

dge, which makes the /g/ sound as in dodge and partridge

tch, which makes the /tch/ sound as in catch, match
