Pronunciation of "c" in Italian
Is there some rule how to pronounce letter "c" in various words? Because when I say for example "la cipolla", c is pronounced as hard "c" (like č in some languages I do not know how to name it), but there is "il biscotto" where "c" is pronounced as "k". And in some other words "c" is pronounced as "c".
I hope I am understandable. Thanks in advance
Yes, there are rules!
Ci, Ce => Ch (in English or Spanish)
Ca, Co, Cu => K
Chi, Che => K [the h is silent]
Cia, Cio, Ciu => Ch [the i is silent]
