13.14: Lesson Fourteen

Created by: CK-12

Elements with [k] in the Middle

1. You've seen that when [k] comes at the end or the beginning of a word, you can usually predict when to use <c>, <ck>, or <k> to spell it. You've seen, too, that when the [k] is at the end or the beginning of a free stem inside a word, you can usually predict among <c>, <ck>, and <k>. The same pattern holds when the [k] is in the middle of a word but is not at the beginning or end of a stem; that is, when [k] is in the middle of an element, as in skip and scold.

2. All of the following words contain a [k] in the middle of an element. In each word underline the letter or letters that spell that [k]. Then sort the words into the three groups described below:

&\text{contractor} && \text{subjects} && \text{hockey} && \text{sacrifice}\\&\text{picnics} && \text{perfectly} && \text{collects} && \text{function}\\&\text{instruction} && \text{ankle} && \text{affectionate} && \text{picture}\\&\text{infection} && \text{describe} && \text{pickle} && \text{electrician}\\&\text{restriction} && \text{spectacle} && \text{crocodile} && \text{intellectual}\\&\text{transcription} && \text{production} && \text{introduction} && \text{instinctive}\\&\text{chuckle} && \text{skirts} && \text{donkey} && \text{wrinkles}\\&\text{sketches} && \text{skyscraper} && \text{skies} && \text{tackle}

3. Now underline the letter that follows that middle [k] sound in each of the words above and sort the words into this matrix:

4. When the sound [k] is in the middle of an element and is followed by <e>, <\text{i}>, or <y>, it will usually be spelled ________ or ________. If it is not followed by <e>, <\text{i}>, or <y>, it will usually be spelled ________.
