  • hey everyone Jennifer from Tarle Speech with your pronunciation question today's

  • question is how do I pronounce R an L at the end of a few words we're going to

  • skip definitions today because we have a lot of words and the lesson is more

  • about the placement of the R and the L at the end of words so we have the words

  • reel and real and rear feel and fear and then I added the word file here because

  • it kind of lends to this lesson and I got a question about that word as well

  • all right so let's go ahead and start with how do we say the L sound to say

  • the L sound especially at the end of the word the mistake that I hear is that

  • people do not touch the tip of the tongue to the teeth and hold it there

  • long enough they kind of get close or move it away too quickly and then it

  • makes the vowel sound incorrect and it makes the L sound like it's not there

  • even if you're really attempting to do it so I'm recommending especially if you

  • struggle with R verses L to really touch the tip of your tongue to the back

  • of your top front teeth and hold it there L L air is going to move out of

  • your mouth for the R sound you have two options the options never include

  • touching your teeth so that's good so what you're going to do is you're either

  • going to take the tip of your tongue and point it to the bottom of your mouth and

  • pull the back of your tongue up er or you're going to flip the tip of your

  • tongue back but do not touch your teeth do not touch your teeth because then

  • it's gonna sound like an L ll lll so again I made R two different ways it sounds

  • exactly the same the key is just do not touch your teeth I think that's where

  • people get confused is they don't touch the teeth and then they touch the teeth

  • and then people are like what are you saying so again let's focus on touching

  • the teeth for that l so we have the word reel and real

  • and rear rear so both of these words are starting with R E and then we're

  • ending with an L or we're ending with an R you might be hearing me say ear and

  • I'm saying that because R when combined with another vowel will make a

  • new vowel sound so again we have reel and rear rear rear now for feel and feel

  • and fear fear so we have real rear feel fear now for file what's the difference

  • here the difference between feel and file is that for E the long e sound is

  • going to smile and for the I going to open your mouth and then smile so that

  • means that your tongue is going to move so we have file file file feel feel feel

  • fear fear fear rear rear rear real real real so one more time real feel file

  • rear and fear give it a try people are going to notice the

  • difference and don't forget touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your

  • top front teeth for that L sound and then for the R you're going to flip the

  • tongue back or point it down just do not touch the teeth so give it a try people

  • are going to notice the difference if you found this helpful
