Four phonemes /s/ /p/ /A/ /s/. A phoneme is a minimal unit of sound and is not connected to the number of letters.
I think I would say 8 - but it's a long time since I studied philology so I may be wrong. Of course, it does depend on how you pronounce it!
There are four phonemes in the word ghost. The 'h' does not produceits own sound. The phonemes are g / o / s / t
One I would say three = f|I|s
A phoneme is the smallest sound unit of a word when you pronounce things, such as the "s" sound or the "th" sound for example. Phonemes are often, but not always, represented …by letters. The word "construction" - written in IPA (phonetic alphabet) as /kÉnËstrÊkÊÉn/ - therefore has 11 phonemes, since it has 11 distinct sounds, each displayed by a phonetic symbol in this phonetic transcription.
sh . r . i . ng (written here without the g) . k So, five phonemes.
The word 'number' has five phonemes, or speech sounds, in anon-rhotic accent such as the Australian accent. They are n/u/m/b/er. In non-rhotic accents, the "er" is aschwa. … In rhotic accents, such as that found inmost parts of the US, the "er" will have two distinct phonemes - eand r - giving the word "number" a total of six phonemes.
There are three phonemes in the word 'this', as the consonant blendof 'th' forms a single phoneme, or speech sound. The phonemes are: th / i / s
There are five phonemes in 'string' - s / t / r / i /ng. Note that the ng blend at the end produces its ownsingle sound.
Phonemes are separate speech sounds. The blend thr is made up of two phonemes - th and r.
3 if you count the vowel sound (which is the diphthong e-i) as one phoneme, which is standard. N-ei-m. There are 4 letters in the word but only three sounds. Phonemes are sou…nd units not letters: the word "though" has six letters but only two phonemes.
This depends on the country and region. InAmerican English, wherever there is a strong rhotic accent, thereare five distinct speech sounds - g / o / ph / e / r . The 'ph' f…orms a blend with a single phoneme, orspeech sound. However,in non-rhotic accents such as Australian English, for example,there are just four, as the "r" is not emphasised, and the finaltwo letters from a schwa, or unstressed syllable with a singlespeech sound. The phonemes are g / o / ph / er.
There are 3 phonemes in the word thing /th/i/ng/. 'th' stands for one mouth move (a digraph), as does 'ng' (another digraph). Counting phonemes is hard in English because… there is no neat one to one match between letters and phonemes.
There are four phonemes, or speech sounds, in the word 'thorough'.One phonemes is formed by the "ough" at the end. The phonemes are th - o - r - ough.
