This 'The Sound gn' spelling quiz initially tests elementary school children on spellings that start with this phoneme. They are taught not to sound out the ‘g’ just like with the sound ‘kn’. The second half of this quiz will inform them that these two letters together don't always create this phoneme and will test them on words that have 'gn' where it is not a sound.
There is a sound made by 'gn'. Hundreds of years ago people used to pronounce the ‘g’ in this phoneme: ‘gn’. Nowadays, the ‘g’ is silent and not said. There are also words where these two letters are together and it doesn't make a sound - you'll need to try and spot the difference! Do your best.
