  • Hi everyone it's Jennifer from Tarle speech  with your question of the week. Continuing  

  • our mini series on heteronymswords that are spelled the same  

  • with different pronunciations  and different meanings.

  • Our words today are:

  • house which is a building that  serves as living quarters and 

  • house which is a verb meaning  to provide living quarters

  • So to say these words correctly they  both start exactly the same way.  

  • How. To do this you're going to open your mouthIt's going to be relaxed for that h sound air  

  • just puffs out and then move to the ow  by opening and then puckering your lips  

  • ow. Your tongue is going to move from the bottom  of your mouth to flat in the middle of your mouth.

  • how how how

  • For the noun, we're going to end that with  an s. To do this tip of your tongue is either  

  • pointed down or behind the top front teeth. Air  moves out of your mouth. Your voice box is off.  

  • It is not vibrating. It is not moving. For the  verb we're going to end with the z. And do that,  

  • all you're going to do is, your tongue is  going to be in the same spot it was for that  

  • s, but your voice box is  going to be on and moving.  

  • Tip here, do not touch your teeth for that z  

  • sound. Some of my students do that by accident  and then it isn't correct. So let's try these:

  • house house house  

  • house house house 

  • house house house house

  • And now for a sentence:

  • I am going to build a house to house my dog. I am going to build a house to house my dog.

  • Give it a try people are going to notice  the difference. If you found this helpful
