Distinguishing the differences between the initial sounds of "G" and "C" are difficult. @_@

‹g› is more fricative-like as in these words:

  • Arabic غريب
  • Spanish amigo

There are more examples on Wikipedia’s page (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiced_velar_fricative) but some are suspect (like Turkish ğ which is an approximant or silent usually).

I think "G" is more guttural and throaty. Could be wrong, though.

"G = Girl, Gay, Gun" . "C = Cut, Count,"
