This letter has the consonant sound that begins the words thin thick, and think.

Hear the letter’s sound: hear the sound
Hear the letter’s name: hear the letter name

It is used in the word for “want:”

hear the sound
The grammatical structure of Greek lets us use this word all by itself without needing to say the word for "I."

and are pronounced differently. The first one has the sound of thin, the second has the sound of this. The difference is called voicing, and you can see a detailed explanation here, or you can proceed.
