Lenth, the G is silent as in Strength

The G isn't silent, but it's not strongly pronounced. The pronunciation will vary depending on where it's said though as well, note that wiktionary has the UK English pronunciation as lĕngth whereas American English pronunciation is lĕnth

you can find a recording on wiktionary, which although it's the American English the g can still be heard: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/length

Using your example of the k - that is how I pronounce it.. but think a soft K - like another poster said.. exactly like strength

She takes ages to pronounce it but says it a few times - helps to pronounce Strength and Length
