Shhhh in church

-sh and -ch cause problems, especially in Romance languages where an h after c makes the c hard (eg cheile, chimen in Romanian). Confused? These sentences will help. Or make your confusion worse…

A) Down in the chasm, she crunches a carrot in silence.

B) It’s a short service in church.

C) Biscuit crumbs are still on his shirt.

D) Switch to a stitch that a witch can sew.

E) Corned beef hash has mashed potatoes.

F) Show the sandwich to six starving sheep.

G) Change can certainly cause chaos in the city centre.

H) The choir sings a chord in the chant.
