I can't remember which two sounds, together, make a 'j' as in jelly sound.

Does anyone know?

Here's a handy phoneme chart. I thnk you mean /dz/, but this isn't made up of two sounds - it's one in its own right (a voiced alveolar fricative - its unvoiced "twin" being "ch").

It is a combination of two sounds - a plosive /d/ as in 'do' and a fricative /zh/ which is the middle sound in measure. They are said so quickly that it is hard to separate and they make a sound called an affricate. Think of it more as a continuous movement from one sound to another rather than two sounds said in succession.

this is one we had problems with with my son, for years! He would say 'delly' then 'zelly' and finally 'jelly'!
