This generalization states that when you hear the /ch/ sound at the end of a syllable AND it is immediately preceded by a short vowel, it is spelled -tch. If there is a consonant or vowel team before the /ch/, it is spelled -ch. -tch will never come at the beginning of a word.

Why is CH pronounced k?
Ch can also be pronounced as [k], as in ache, choir, school and stomach.

In English words of French origin, "ch" represents [?], as in charade, machine, and nonchalant.
