## Soft <c> and Silent Final <e>

1. When the letter <c> has an _____, _____, or _____ right after it, it spells the sound ____ and is called __________. Otherwise, it spells the sound _____ and is called __________.

2. Pronounce these words:

$& \text{fabric} && \text{price} \\& \text{arc} && \text{ignorance} \\& \text{traffic} && \text{rejoice} \\& \text{democratic} && \text{twice} \\& \text{mechanic} && \text{office} \\& \text{maniac} && \text{fierce} \\& \text{comic} && \text{since}$

3. Do the words in the left column end with a hard <c> or with a soft <c>? ________

Do the words in the right column end with a hard <c> or with a soft <c>? _________

Why are the <c>’s in the right column soft <c>’s? _________.

Why are the <c>’s in the left column hard <c>’s? _________.

4. One of the jobs of silent final <e> is to mark a <c> right before it as soft. In the words in the right column the final <e>’s are all marking <c>’s as being soft. But in two of the words in the right column the final <e> is also marking the preceding vowel as being long. Those two words are: ____________ and ___________.

6. So far you’ve seen two different jobs that final <e> can do: Final <e> can mark a preceding vowel as being __________ . Final <e> can mark a preceding <c> as being __________. And sometimes a final <e> can do both things at once — as in the word lace.
