Italian Letter Combination

The letter combination GH is pronounced like the hard English g in "granite."

Italian sound files Per esempio…
unghia   fingernail
rughe   wrinkles
funghi   mushrooms
acciughe   anchovies

 Note that GH is only ever found in front of the soft vowels E and I – H is added to make the G hard. In front of hard vowels (A, O, U), the letter G is already a hard g sound.
