When silent letters are in a word, that makes it more difficult to spell a word. Usually a word is misspelled due to not hearing or pronouncing the silent letter when saying the word to yourself. Lots of words have a silent e, but usually the e is at the end of the word as in tame, sake, or name. When the e is silent at the end of a word, it usually means that the other vowel is a long vowel. These words that contained the silent e were not always silent when the language was first being put together. In Old English, sometimes the e was pronounced. There are many television programs and songs for children that describe the silent e rule.
