Consonants /ʒ/ versus /ʧ/, 3 pairs     

Only three pairs were identified in the main list, although more might be found by extending the search among newer loan words, eg g�te/cheat. Obviously the contrast is not a problem for learners though the sounds are similar.

leisure lecher 
treasury treachery 
   treasuries treacheries
