We are currently going to think about words where the soft g sound shows up elsewhere in the word.

If the /j/ sound comes in other places in a native it have the right to be assignment jor g.

These rules will certainly help:

1. Before the collection a, o and also u, the sound /j/is commonly spelled v the letter j:
January job jump
2. Before the collection e, i and y, the sound /j/is usually spelled with the letter g:
Germany giraffe gymnastics
