hi Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question today's question
is what is the difference between TR in tree and Trust and the th R in three or
thrust this is kind of a difficult um task today but I know we can get through it
so what I'm gonna do first is I'm gonna have you rely on visuals and looking at
me first and listening then I'm going to show you the words so for the TR
combination I'm going to touch the tip of my tongue to the back of my top front
teeth for the T sound and then quickly move to the R sound people do one of two
things they either roll the tip of their tongue
back for the R or point the tip of their tongue down to the bottom of their mouth
and pull the back of their tongue up for the R doesn't matter which one you do
just make sure you move quickly from the T behind your teeth tree or tree
whichever one you do your tongue stays in your mouth now we're going to look at
the th R in three so to do this it's that dreaded th sound stick your tongue
out of your mouth yes out of your mouth do not touch your teeth with your tongue
keep it out there and then blow out and let that air keep moving out of your
mouth th th three you're going to have to then go from all the way out of your mouth
and pull your tongue back in again either then point it down for the R or
roll it back whichever one that you do so for tree going to keep your tongue in
your mouth and the air is just going to puff out for the T and for the th r
your tongue is going to come out of your mouth and that air is going to keep
moving so let's look at the difference tree tree Tree three
three three here are the words tree three trust Trust trust thrust thrust
thrust if this is difficult for you and you don't want to say the word free
which is f ree instead of three the number try adding a short uh sound in
there and then make that sound smaller and smaller until it goes away so it
sounds something like this three three three so I added a very
short little uh sound right between the th and the R it's really helpful for some
people especially people on the phone when people might get confused if you're
saying free instead of three so one more time before we go tree three trust
thrust give it a try I know people are going to notice a difference please give
