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

The /ie/ sound has five spellings, i (find), ie (pie), i-e (pine), y (cry), and igh (high). The most common spelling, i-e, is a split-vowel spelling where the ending consonant sound is inserted at the dash mark.

The "y" spelling is an ending in all but one word (rhyme). This list is useful for locating simple words that have a common spelling of the /ie/ sound, such as the "igh" in fight, high, and slight, because the list is organized by the vowel spellings.

Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, 158 of them are one-syllable words in which the vowel sound is /ie/.
