  • everyone.

  • This is Jennifer from Tyrol Speech and I have a follow up question today to my video on how to pronounce pawn and porn.

  • I've got a lot of comments on that video, and I can't believe I'm going to say this, making another video on how to say porn today versus pond and a new word prawn.

  • So let's take a look at these words.

  • So word number one, we have prawn, and that is a large shrimp.

  • I also learned in doing some research that you can call a woman a prawn.

  • Um, didn't know this.

  • You can google it.

  • Um, next we have upon and that is a piece in tha game of chess.

  • And it is also when you use something as collateral to get some money.

  • And the last one is porn short for pornography.

  • Okay, So quickly, let's go through the endings here.

  • So end to say the last sound in these words, you're going to touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth, and the air is going to move through your nose.

  • Hmm.

  • Easy, breezy.

  • It's the same for every one of those words.

  • Now Let's look at these middle sounds, Okay, in the word prawn and in the word upon our mouth is going to be open in a wide oval when you open your mouth and a wide oval.

  • Ah, that's going to help the tip of your tongue.

  • Get way down low in the front of your mouth in the bottom of your mouth and the back of your tongue will be pulled up.

  • Ah, that vowel is different than the or in porn.

  • So for the or you're going to round your lips, pucker them and then pull them back.

  • Your tongue is going to be in the middle of your mouth for the part of the word is just flat in the middle of your mouth.

  • And then you're going to either tip your tongue down with the back, pull up or flip the tip of the tongue back for that are sound or or all right, and then for the P.

  • What we're going to do is just open your mouth.

  • Easy, breezy.

  • Okay, so let's try this word first pawn upon upon.

  • I think porn and prawn get confusing because they both have an R and people are putting the ours in the wrong places.

  • So for porn are is going to be second.

  • Okay, so think of saying and then porn porn.

  • So you're or is going to be with the ending of the word and I'm actually going thio put a little line underneath that, as opposed to the p r and craun craun to make that pr sound.

  • Your lips are going together together, and you're going to be ready for the are the tip of your tongue is going to be down or flipped back and get your lips together to start that sound while your tongue is in the position for the r.

  • And then all you're going to do is open your mouth on bake it into a tense square for that are sound her.

  • Uh huh.

  • Pra don't develop between It's not Pop Ron.

  • It's Prah prawn.

  • Okay, so again are is at the beginning of the word prah prawn as opposed to you.

  • The art is at the end of the word born porn.

  • So we have prawn prawn prawn pawn upon upon and porn horn porn.

  • So again, let me try this all together.

  • Porn pawn, prawn, prawn, pawn and porn.

  • Okay, so give it a try.

  • I know people are going to notice the difference.

  • I hope this help and cleared up a lot of the confusion.
