Teach your student the phonics advanced code in as little as 8 weeks with our 170-page workbook and instruction manual.

The /i/ sound has one alternative spelling, y, besides the usual i spelling.

The letters "i" and "y" both represent the same vowel sounds in English words, but they should be tested in new words as follows: "i" (/i/, /ie/, /ee/) and "y" (/ee/, /ie/, /i/) due to the number of words in which each letter represents those sounds.

Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, four of them are one-syllable words in which the vowel sound /i/ is spelled "y".
