pronunciation s and t
Pronunciation: /s/ and /t/
  • Different speech sounds are made by the way air flows out over the tongue.
  • When the tongue touches different parts of the mouth, the air flow changes, which changes the sound you hear.
continuant s
Continuant : /s/
  • When you pronounce /s/, the air flows through without stopping it.
  • Your tongue should be behind your upper teeth but not touching them.
  • Example: bus
stop t
Stop: /t/
  • When you pronounce /t/, you stop the air flow inside the mouth.
  • Your tongue should be behind the upper teeth. However, your tongue should tap the upper ridge of your mouth.
  • Example: but
