This 'The Sound o' spelling quiz tests elementary school children on spellings where this sound changes to ‘uh’ instead of ‘oh’. All the words will make the ‘uh’ sound and as guidance, use the word ‘mother’ as a starting point.

The letter ‘o’ sometimes makes an ‘oe’ or ‘oh’ sound but it can also make an ‘uh’ sound. This quiz is going to ask you to spell the missing words that have the letter ‘o’ but where the pronunciation is ‘uh’. See how well you do.
