  • hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle Speech with your pronunciation question we have

  • a confusing word pair today yield to give way and yelled to shout so let's

  • take a look at these words the word yield is confusing because of the

  • spelling I hear a lot of mistakes because it's spelled I E it doesn't

  • look like we should say the long e that's exactly what we are going to do

  • we're going to say e that's the smiling vowel so smile the tongue is going to be

  • high and flat in the mouth e for yelled we just had a video on those super

  • exciting we have a double consonant combination here so that clues the

  • saying when we see two double consonants and then I'm sorry one double consonant

  • that means two and then we have the ending the e d in this case this vowel

  • before it is going to be short so we're going to have that eh eh eh sound so for that eh

  • sound your mouth is going to be a lot more open than it is for that e sound

  • that's very closed so e it's going to be very closed very tense mouth and high

  • flat tongue eh your mouth is going to be open you're going to be able to see your

  • tongue between the top and bottom teeth and think about having that tongue point

  • at you between your top and your bottom teeth eh eh eh and for this sound your mouth is

  • relaxed your lips are relaxed your cheeks are relax just relax everything

  • so what about that Y sound this sound is the Nemesis of many of my students so

  • for the y sound it's not J we're not saying gelled like you've gelled

  • your hair and you point product in your hair we are going to say yeah so to do

  • that do not touch your teeth with your tongue you are not going to touch the

  • tip of your tongue to your front teeth the tip of your tongue is going to be

  • away from your front teeth it's not touching you can for support touch the

  • insides of your back top Teeth with these sides of your tongue for the

  • y-y-y sound it's really high in your mouth the back of your tongue and

  • the tip of your tongue is just pointing down and away from your front teeth y

  • y y and then for the LD you're going to

  • touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth for that Lllll

  • and then pull it down for that D sound okay so let's put that all together okay
