  • Hi everyone jennifer from Tarle speech  with your pronunciation question.

  • We have three words today nutrient  

  • nutrition and nutritious and these words all  refer to substances that provide nourishment.

  • So let's take a look at our words: We have nutrient nutrition and nutritious.

  • All right so let's start with syllable number one  new - nice and easy touch the tip of your tongue  

  • to the back of your top front teeth for thatsound air will move out of your nose for that  

  • nasal n sound; and then puck your lips for the oo  and make that vowel nice and long. New new. Yes  

  • it's just like the word new. For nutrient, nextwe are going to move to the tree syllable. To say  

  • tree you are going to touch the tip of your tongue  to the back of your top front teeth for that t  

  • and then you are going to move it away either  

  • back away from the teeth or down to the  bottom of the mouth for the r tr tr tr

  • It's not a ch sound it's not a cha  it's a tr tr your tongue is staying  

  • is moving more down or flipping back  

  • not just pulling back I do have a video on that  sound i'll link it, um in case you are interested.

  • And then you are going to smile  for that long e tree tree tree

  • So let's put those first two syllables  together new tree nutri nutri new tree.

  • And then we're going to end with ant short  unstressed u sound mouth is just relaxed,  

  • and then say that n touch the  teeth, air comes out of the nose,  

  • and then as you pull the tongue away from  the teeth air just pops out of the mouth.

  • unt unt unt

  • nutrient  

  • nutrient nutrient nutrient

  • Now for nutrition and nutritious,  

  • what we're going to do is we're going to shift  that stress to the tr, to that middle syllable,  

  • and we're no longer going to say an e. It's  going to be a short i. So you're going to relax  

  • your mouth a little bit for that short i, E is up  here , short i, ih, is just down here. Your tongue  

  • will go from way high for the e, pop down a little  bit, still going to be flat and high for that ih.

  • E ih E ih

  • And then we're going to end with shunpucker your lips for that sh sound,  

  • air moves out. Move to that short uh sound and  then end with the n by touching the tip of the  

  • tongue to the back of the top front teeth. Air  moves out of the nose for the shun or shus.  

  • Then you are just going to do the sh shortuh s and then the s sound key here is make sure  

  • your lips are pulled back and no longer puckeredFor that s sound tip of the tongue is either down  

  • or behind the back of the top front teeth. Let's  put these all together: new tri shun new tri shus 

  • Let's give them all a try. nutrient nutrient nutrient 

  • nutrition nutrition nutrition nutrition nutritious nutritious nutritious  

  • nutritious nutritious nutritious  nutrient nutrition nutritious

  • So I hope that you were getting a lot of your  nutrients from your foods that have that are  

  • very nutritious and good for your nutrition. So give it a try I know people are going to notice  

  • the difference. If you found this helpful  we'd love a like a share and a subscribe,
