The letter "C"

The letter "C"
I think that the letter c can be one of the trickiest letters in the alphabet! Seriously! The one thing I don't understand is the combo of "ck" in truck and the word lick! Why in the world do we need two letters side by side that sound the same? And some of the sounds created by the letter "C" can be confused with some of the sounds that involve s, k, And even t if you think about it. Ci can make a sh sound which can also be confused with the sound to can make in the word notion. The more obvious comparison would be the letter k. But in the word especially , you could argue that it makes the same sound as an s. No wonder so many of us have difficulty spelling!
