# Both sides CH and TH
Special thanks to Scott Pierce (opens new window) for funding this lesson.
# Left side CH
Since there is no C key on the layout, we substitute
K and use
KH for initial CH.
# Right side CH
Words ending with the "tch" or "ch" sound are made on the right hand with
-FP. It's also used if there is a homophone where the only differentiator is spelling.
TEFP: tech (spelling). You can also use
# Left side TH
You've already learned initial TH in previous lessons as it's just
# Right side TH
The first use of the asterisk for us is with final "th". Adding an asterisk to a chord with a
-T in it will make a "th" sound.
*T is the "th" sound.
