/ks/ Sounds Spelled CC Word List
While "cc" is usually a digraph representing the /k/ sound, in some words each letter represents a separate sound, /k/ followed by /s/. The Rule of c states that the letter "c" before an "e", "i", or "y" represents the /s/ sound. Therefore, while the first one stands for the /k/ sound because it's followed by a "c", the second letter "c" in success stands for the /s/ sound. In this case the "cc" is not a digraph and the two c's even appear in different syllables (or chunks.)
Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, nine of them are words with the /ks/ sounds spelled "cc".
