15 Correspondence Readers: Tim

Post by mtyler »

This is the next level. This level adds these 5 correspondences: m-/m/, h-/h/, i-/i/, a-/u/, and s-/z/. These last two are only used in specific situations: the a-/u/ is only used for the word 'a', and s-/z/ is used in plurals and past tense (where the voice will help distinguish which sound for s to use) and in the words 'as,' 'is,' 'has,' and 'his'.
