In both the words commercial and occassion are there any silent letters that are not voiced when these words are pronounced?

  • English -

    In "commercial" the "ci" makes an "sh" sound. There are no actual silent letters, though.

    In "occasion" (note the spelling) the "si" makes a "zh" sound, but again, there aren't any silent letters.
