      I don’t know any more with this sound-spelling relationship, though maybe there are other borrowings from Italian that were not in the dictionary when I went through it. Sorry.

        If there were 20 words with letter C pronounced /ch/ in the dictionary I went through to make these lists, I would have put them here. Maybe look on Italian menus or maps? Most of these are from Italian. Alison
