Digraph Examples

Digraphs are pairs of letters that come together to create a single sound. These letter combinations work together to produce a unique phonetic sound that is different from the individual sounds of the letters.

There are two main types of digraphs: Initial digraphs and Final digraphs. Initial digraphs appear at the beginning of words, while Final digraphs occur at the end of words which is why you will often see the words beginning and ending used interchangeably with the terms initial and final.

Understanding and recognizing these digraphs is essential for building strong literacy skills and improving both reading and spelling abilities. Check out these digraph words list of the most commonly used initial and final digraph words and word families.
