Coded Phonics History
    • A phonetic language is one where one letter is represented by one sound and one sound is spelled by one letter.
    • That is why English is NOT a phonetic language.
    • In order to spell these 42 sounds with a 26-letter alphabet, many individual letters represent more than one sound.
  • Phonetic Vowels

    • The following group of words illustrates the point that one letter often represents more than one sound. The letter “a” can have the following nine vowel sounds in English:
    • In addition, one sound can often be spelled in different ways e.g. the vowel sound “ay” (long vowel sound of “a”) can be spelled as:
  • Phonetic Consonants

    • The consonants of English are more phonetic than the vowels. However, there are some consonants that have more than one sound e.g.
    • Consonants also, but to a lesser degree, form letter groups that represent more than one sound. For example “ch” in chance, chaos, chef and choir has four different sounds.
  • EDUSS Phonic code

    • The EDUSS Coded system simplifies English, making it into a phonetic language by using a special colour-coding system, which accelerates the learning process.
    • Vowels are coded red and given a unique numerical superscript that identifies their sound.
    • Consonants are coded blue and given a blue phonetic letter superscript when they are not phonetic.
    • Silent letters are coded grey as in judge.
