This is an entry in the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #41: Short and Sweet.
English spelling is very strange. Sometimes you encounter words with letter combinations that would seem entirely unpronounceable on their own.
I have listed a few such letter combinations below. Try to determine what word each combination is from.
- The letters may appear at the beginning, middle or end of the word, but they are all consecutive (no other letters appear in between)
- All words will be found in any reasonable dictionary. None are particularly obscure.
- In cases where there may be 2 or 3 valid answers, an additional letter has been supplied to disambiguate. The additional letter must be found somewhere in the answer word.
- Since using computers makes this challenge trivial, please try to work this one out using only your own brain (or those of your friends).
When you have all the words, their initials will spell something that English in general, or these words particularly, could use.
