  • to make this as simple as possible and we're going to break this word into its

  • 1 2 3 4 5 syllables or 5 beats we're gonna have miss uh lay knee us yes we do

  • spell the word knee your leg joint with the K but I took it out so that I

  • wouldn't confuse you here because it is a silent letter so let's start with our

  • first syllable miss to say this lips together for the M mm air moves through

  • your nose move to that short ih sound and to do this your mouth is slightly

  • open and the tip of your tongue is just behind your top front teeth ih ih your

  • lips are relaxed then we're gonna end with an S sss and to do this the air moves

  • out of your mouth while the tip of your tongue is either behind your top teeth

  • linked to that first syllable missa then we're going to move to lay and to

  • do this you're going to touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top

  • front teeth and then move to that long a sound and to do this you're going to

  • open your mouth in a wide circle which is going to help the tip of your tongue

  • get down and the back of your tongue to be pulled up and then we're going to

  • move to that e vowel when your tongue is going to be flat and high in your mouth

  • and you're going to smile for the end of that vile vowel lay missa lay missa lay

  • and then we're going to move to the knee for this you're going to touch the tip

  • of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth air moves out of your nose
