Sssh! Don’t Say This Letter

I thought you might like to be reminded that the b in the following words are silent. This means that we don’t pronounce them.

bomb (Bombe)
climb (klettern)
comb (Kamm)
crumb (Krümel)
debt (Schuld/Schulden)
doubt (Zweifel)
dumb (dumm)
lamb (Lamm)
limb (Gliedmaß)
numb (taub)
thumb (Daumen)
tomb (Grabstätte)
womb (Mutterleib, Schoß)

Say each word out loud. Can’t hear the b? Perfect!
