Sometimes [j] is Spelled <d>

1. Another way of spelling [j] is due to the same kind of palatalization that you encountered in the various spellings of [sh]. Underline the letters that spell [j] in the following words:

\begin{align*}&\text {gradual} && \text {schedule} && \text {procedure} && \text {educate}\\ &\text {pendulum} && \text {graduate} && \text {individual} && \text {arduous}\\ &\text {fraudulent} && \text {residual} && \text {modulation} && \text {assiduous}\end{align*}

2. What letter always follows the <d> in these words? _____

3. Underline the letters that spell [j] in the following three words:

\begin{align*}&\text {cordial} && \text {grandeur} && \text {soldier}\end{align*}

How does the setting in which <d> spells [j] in these three words differ from the setting in part 1 above?



4. Sort the following words into the two groups defined below:

\begin{align*}&\text{graded} && \text {fraudulently} && \text {modulate} && \text {educated}\\ &\text{gradual} && \text {defrauded} && \text{proceeded} && \text{reduced}\\ &\text{pendulum}&& \text {resident} && \text{individual} && \text{arduous}\\ &\text{dependent}&& \text {residual} && \text{undivided} && \text{yardage}\end{align*}

5. You have worked with five different ways to spell [j]. Write them in the left-hand column below, and in the right-hand column write a word that contains each of the spellings:
