  • Yeah.

  • Hello, I'm John Russell.

  • Some consonant sounds are like coins.

  • A coin is usually made from one material, but the front and back look different.

  • There are consonant sounds that are also like that.

  • Today.

  • We will explore how coins are like certain kinds of sounds in American English.

  • In previous videos, I talked about stop consonant sounds sounds that involves stopping the air for a brief amount of time.

  • I also talked about voicing movement of the vocal cords.

  • But how do stop consonant sounds connect with voicing?

  • There are six stop sounds in American English.

  • They are, but to yeah, car Good.

  • And let's see how these sounds connect with coins.

  • First, we have the PA and PA sounds.

  • These sounds are made out of the same basic material.

  • They both require you to use both of your lips.

  • But so what is the difference between them?

  • Voicing is voiceless and but is voiced.

  • It's like two sides of the same coin heads and tails voiced and voiceless.

  • The other four stop sounds act in the same way.

  • Now the problem with stop sounds is that it can be difficult to tell if your vocal cords are moving.

  • This is because stop sounds can't really be made longer.

  • After all, they involve stopping the air.

  • But there are important patterns in how English speakers use stop sounds with vowels.

  • But that will have to be a subject of a future video.

  • That's all for today.

  • Keep up the good work.
