  • hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question

  • actually this is more of a quick tip today but I've gotten a lot of requests

  • lately for words that are the same except for the s

  • versus the s H sound so I will show you all of words I've had requests

  • for as a late see and she self and shelf save and shave sell and shell

  • sort and short so what's the difference with these words it's s versus the sh

  • sound this is something super important to keep in mind SH is

  • considered a digraph and a digraph is two letters that stand for one sound so

  • this is not an S Plus an H it is one sound it is that Shh so you've probably

  • seen people do this Shh which means to be quiet and Shh is the

  • SH sound again two letters one sound to make the SH sound

  • you're going to pucker your lips Shh and the air is going to keep moving out

  • of your mouth your tongue is not touching your teeth the difference is

  • for the sss sound you can see my mouth is kind of smiling meaning that my lips are

  • a little more pulled back and they are not puckered at all again one letter

  • s one sound sss your tongue is not touching your teeth so again we have sss and shhhh

  • sss and shh and let's try it and these words see self save sell sort she shelf shave

  • shell short and then we'll contrast them see she self shelf save shave sell shell

  • sort short so give it a try I know people are going to notice the

  • difference if you found this helpful we'd love a like a share and a subscribe
