The letter c is one of the more slippery letters in English spelling. Sometimes it produces the same sound as the letter k, sometimes it produces the same sound as the letter s. For a long time the English language did not have a letter k, in fact. In Old English, the letter c was not used to make the same sound as an s, but could make the same sound as the modern ch. Many aspects of language change over time, including grammar, spelling, vocabulary and individual meanings of words. No wonder spelling is a challenge!
