Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Review Of <kn> And <gn>

1. Here are the words from the previous lesson in which [n] is spelled <kn>.

\begin{align*}& \text{knows} && \text{foreknowledge} && \text{knave} && \text{knee} && \text{knell} \\ & \text{knelt} && \text{unknown} && \text{kneel} && \text{knead} && \text{knoll} \\ & \text{known} && \text{knower} && \text{knight} && \text{knit} && \text{knot} \\ & \text{knowable} && \text{knowledge} && \text{knife} && \text{knock}\end{align*}

The <kn> is always in the same place in the element it is in. Is <kn> always at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of its element? ____________

2. The word acknowledge also has [n] spelled <kn>. Acknowledge contains a prefix, a base, and a suffix: ac + know + ledge. Is the <kn> in acknowledge in the same place in its element that the <kn> is in in the nineteen words above? ____________

3. Here are some words in which [n] is spelled <gn>. Look carefully at where the <gn> is in its element in each of them:

\begin{align*}& \text{design} && \text{campaign} && \text{reign} \\ & \text{sign} && \text{gnash} && \text{resign} \\ & \text{foreign} && \text{gnat} && \text{gnu}\end{align*}

You should find that the <gn> spelling of [n] always occurs in one of two places in the element it is in. What are the two places? _____________________________________________
