16.8: Sometimes [j] is Spelled < d >

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

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:

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

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

&\text {cordial} && \text {grandeur} && \text {soldier}

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:

&\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}
