Why do we have silent letters in the English language?

In an alphabetic writing system, a silent letter is a letter that, in a particular word, does not correspond to any sound in the word’s pronunciation. Silent letters are the ghosts of pronunciations past. The word ‘knight’, with its silent ‘k’, and silent ‘gh’, is cognate with the German word for servant, ‘knecht’, where every letter is pronounced.

Process occurs when we borrow words from other languages. ‘Tsunami’ was borrowed from Japanese, and ‘psychology’ was borrowed from Greek. The initial consonant sounds in these words are not used in English, at least to start words. English ends words with those clusters, though: ‘hats’, ‘chops’. The initial ‘p’ in ‘psychology’ (and ‘pterodactyl’, and other words from Greek) has become silent in English. Some English speakers – not all – simplify the word ‘tsunami’ by not pronouncing the initial ‘t’, so that it fits in with the phonological rules of English.
