What sound does “PH” make?

P is for pencil and pepper. H begins the words home and harpsichordists. But when the letters P and H come together, they make a whole new sound. Phone! Elephant! Photosynthesis! Alphabet!

In this phenomenal phonics ditty, the StoryBots sing about the letters PH. From the Iowa Reading Research Center:

“Consonant digraphs are two or more consonants that, together, represent one sound… the consonants ‘p’ and ‘h’ form the grapheme ph that can represent the /f/ sound in words such as ‘nephew’ and ‘phone.’”
