I'm not so convinced about one of a pair of letters being called silent, as in jazz and cliff. You are making the letter's noise but you can't attribute that to just one of the letters.
Also, having some Nordic language background, where double letters changes the pronunciation, I find it hard to see one of a pair as silent.
