/ch/ Sound Spelled TCH Word List
By Rodney Everson
The /ch/ sound has two common spellings, ch and tch.
In the OnTrack Reading curriculum, the "tch" spelling is one of four Markers that mark the preceding vowel letter as a First Vowel Sound, that is, a short sound. In this list, watch and butcher are the only exceptions to the marker concept.
Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, 32 of them are words with the /ch/ sound spelled "tch".
Note on the word divisions: Each word is divided into chunks determined by the unique and highly effective OnTrack Reading Multisyllable Method. The chunks are not syllables.
