Phonics is the application of the science of speech sounds to reading and spelling, and it is concerned with the sounds of the spoken language (phonemes) and their graphic forms (graphemes). In the English language there is not a 1-to-1 grapheme-phoneme relationship; 43 basic speech sounds are recorded by using 26 letters. Other irregularities result from the fact that there are approximately 250 ways of indicating (spelling) the 43 phonemes. Also, there are articulation and functional differences between vowels and consonants which further complicate the language. Descriptions and illustrations of the 43 phonemes are provided, and examples of words and sentences rewritten phonetically are included. (WB)
