“c” and “g” are usually pronounced as hard sounds beore “a”, “o” and “u”;

e.g. : cat, cousin,custard, gander, gondola,gush. But before “I”.:e: and “y” they are usually pronounced as soft sounds: e.g. cine,a, certain,cycle, giant, gentle, gymnast.

Consequently if a word ends in a hard “c” (mimic) and we wish to add “ing”, we insert a ‘k” first, to keep the “c” hard; e.g. mimic-mimicking; but mimic-mimicry.

Similarly, we insert a “u” to keep a “g” hard; e.g. Portugal-portuguese.

On the other hand if we wish to keep a “c” or “g” soft, we insert an “I” or “e”; e.g. courage-courageous; malice-malicious.
