  • hello Jennifer from tarle speech with your pronunciation question today we

  • have three words law legal and lawyer and spelling is really confusing here so

  • let's go ahead and jump right in so the first word we have law and to say this

  • word you're going to touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top

  • front teeth in fact this sound starts all three

  • words so you were already you've got to jump on the other words L for law we

  • are not going to say the W sound instead you're going to say an open oh sound

  • made with an oval mouth and the tip of your tongue is going to be low in the

  • mouth and the back of your tongue will be pulled up law next for lawyer super

  • confusing we actually say an oi sound here and to do that you're going to

  • pucker oi and then move to a smile so Loy er

  • and then end with that really strong American er sound tense lips tongue tip

  • either be pointed down or rolled back lawyer' lawyer' lawyer' and then for

  • legal think of saying Li which could be an a person's name Li and do that by

  • saying the L by touching the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front

  • teeth and then moving to that e by smiling Li and then we're gonna end with

  • gull and like the bird and to do that you're going to put the tip of your

  • tongue in the bottom of your mouth for that G the back of your tongue is pulled

  • up add the short uh sound as you move to the L the L sound again to end that

  • word legal legal legal let's try all those words again law lawyer legal law

  • lawyer legal I'm gonna add a little bonus word and because I actually got a

  • question about this just before I started recording and the word is low so

  • law is la W and low is L o w again we are not going to pronounce the W sound we are just going to

  • use the long o so low law and low so the difference

  • here is open for a law and then puckered for a low at the end of that word law

  • low legal lawyer law let me give you an example sentence here

  • the lawyer offered legal advice the lawyer offered legal advice from his

  • law office for a low fee just made up that ending I'm loving myself alright so
