How Do You Spell CK?

The spelling of the letter combination "ck" in English words is an important aspect of pronunciation. In fact, the "ck" combination is used when we hear a short vowel sound, immediately before the "k" sound. For example, in the word "duck", the "u" is short, and is followed by the "ck" combination. This is transcribed using the International Phonetic Alphabet as /dʌk/. Likewise, "back" is transcribed as /bæk/, and "pack" is /pæk/. Understanding this rule can help improve English pronunciation and spelling.
