  • question is how do you pronounce the word mansion or a very large house and

  • mention which would be to say something about or to comment on something so here

  • are our words sorry my board got all turned around there

  • so the words our mansion and mention so these words are going to end the same

  • way with the tion so let's start with that so to say this Shh your lips are

  • going to be rounded and your tongue is not touching anything in your mouth it's

  • just behind your top front teeth Shh and the air is going to continue to move out

  • of your mouth then think about moving to that n sound nnn ip of the tongue is

  • touching the back of the top front teeth and the air is moving out of the nose

  • shun shun yes there is a little bit of an uh in there for the tion but if you

  • just think about moving from that Sh to that n sound that's going to get that

  • little sound in there and you don't really have to think about adding any

  • other vowel shun shun now for a man and men what you're going to do for man is

  • you're going to think about moving from your lips being closed for that M sound

  • mmm open really wide for that ah and the tongue is going to be very low the tip

  • is going to be very low in the mouth and the back is going to be pulled up a bit

  • and then you're going to move closed again for that n sound nnn

  • man man man and then for men you are going to start with that M sound again

  • and end with the n sound the difference here is your mouth is not going to open

  • as much your mouth is going to be open and the tip of your tongue will be about

  • behind the front teeth of the bottom front

  • teeth so about here men men men so you can see my tongue does not move as much
