[s] versus [z] Pronunciation
Hi there! I just wanted to ask: when is the letter "S" pronounced z, and when is it pronounced s? I've heard both but can never figure out any sort of pattern. In addition, when is the letter "Z" pronounced "ts" and when is it pronounced "z"? Thanks!
s is pronounced z when it starts a syllable
- st is pronounced sht
- sch is pronounced sh
z is always pronounced ts
