U (touch) Sound with “ou” Spelling Multisyllable Word List
By Rodney Everson
This list has all multisyllable words in the database that contain the ou spelling of the /u/ sound. They are arranged by the chunk that the spelling occurs. It can be a valuable resource for locating words to illustrate a certain pattern or to find words to practice reading that pattern.
Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, 54 of them are multisyllable words containing the "ou" spelling of the /u/ sound. Most of the multisyllable examples are on the list because of the common "ous" ending in words like nervous.
Note on the word divisions: Each word is divided into chunks determined by the unique and effective OnTrack Reading Multisyllable Method. The chunks are not syllables.
