I have succeeded with every letter but J. Some people submit that the J is silent in "marijuana" or "hallelujah" when, in fact, they are voiced not as the usual [d-zh] diphthong. The "ju" digraph in most -juana words is voiced as a W, while the j in hallelujah is voiced as a y. Some say V is never, ever silent, but I submit that the second V in the word "savvy" is, in fact, silent, since it is pronounced SA-vee, and not SAV-vee. Here is "my" alphabet:
a: boatb: dumbc: scened: Wednesdaye: once*f: halfpenny is not American, but IS English (and though many people do pronounce the second f in “fifth,” it is not incorrect when pronounced “fith”)g: gnostich: houri: businessj:k: knowledgel: wouldm: mnemonicn: autumno: phoenixp: pneumoniaq: lacquer r: macabres: islandt: balletu: guidev: savvyw: answerx: fauxy: dayz: rendezvous
