  • Hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your  two for Tuesday. We actually have three words  

  • today so it's a three for Tuesday. But it just  doesn't have the same ring so i'll stick with  

  • two for Tuesday. So again we have three words all  of these words are going to be pronounced exactly  

  • the same because they are homophones but they will  have different meanings and different spellings.  

  • So our words are cord which means a thin  flexible rope that is often used with a  

  • charger like for your phone. Chord musical notes  and cored to remove the central part of a fruit.  

  • So to say these words correctly three little  sounds we're going to start with that k sound  

  • tip of the tongue is down, back of the tongue  is pulled up air puffs out then we're going to  

  • move to the or sound - to do that you're going to  pucker your lips then pull them back into a square  

  • tense shape for the r part of the vowel. And  for the r part the tip of your tongue is either  

  • down to the bottom of your mouth or flipped backalways the back of the tongue is pulled up high.  

  • Just do not touch your teeth with your tongue that  is the mistake that I hear the most from people.  

  • Again just keep that tongue away from the teeth  for the or then we're going to end with the d  

  • d. To do this tip of the tongue touches the  back of the top front teeth and pulls down  

  • air puffs out and your voice box is on  vibrating and moving. Let's put it all together:

  • chord cord cored chord cord cored chord And now for a sentence: the singer cut the  

  • cord while he cored the apple and struck a deep  cord expressing his sorrow in song. So the singer  

  • cut the cord while he cored the apple and struck  a deep cord expressing his sorrow in song. Give it
