  • litter litter so to say this part of the word let's start with the l

  • tip of the tongue is behind the back of the top front teeth l

  • and then you're going to pull it down for that short i

  • sound then quickly touch the back of the top of the front teeth

  • again for that d and then move to the er with square tense lips

  • litter litter litter yes that d is very very fast

  • in this situation litter litter litter so now that you know that you can

  • tackle this word by just adding the l litter l literal
