Now let's look at the consonants T and D, the T is voiceless, so the vocal cords are not vibrating, but the D is voice so they will be vibrating. When you make the tea, you need very firm contact between the tip of your tongue and the top of your mouth. This contact will be firmer for tea than it is for D. At the beginning of the word, the tea produces a strong puff of air. As in Tim, the tip of the tongue must firmly touch the tooth bridge and then quickly release. The key is quickly. If your tongue isn't quick enough, it might not sound like a tea at the beginning of a word D as in dog produces a mild puff of air.

So if I hold my hand in front of my mouth and say, dog, I don't feel a lot of air coming On the D just a little dog, but if I say, Tim, there is a strong puff of air on the T, some words have a silent t often listen, moisten, fasten hustle. Now let's distinguish between t and d at the beginning of a word. tear their tie dye toll, dole tan then 10 then tox dot tour door ton done, town. Down, tip dip to do toe dough i t Id Now let's look at tea in the middle of a word but at the beginning of a stressed syllable. This tea will also have a strong puff of air context. certificate.

Scientist articulate absent te a climatized artistic attack mathematician Opportunity utility potato T and the S t cluster will also have a strong puff of air and be a clear T and S T the T will be clear whether it's at the beginning, middle or end of a word. Begin with the s sound and interrupt it with a quick T. stages, stability storage steps, distribute. Often speakers don't spend enough time on the s and the result is that listeners don't hear the s and don't know that you're saying an S T. Make sure you spend enough time on the S With enough breath exhaling out of your mouth for a moment in time. Let's distinguish between words that have an St. and Justin s. Worst, worse. So in the first word worst, I let my tongue quickly touch the top of my mouth and quickly release from the top of my mouth to make that abrupt sound.

Worst, cursed curse. So no one will understand that you're making the past tense if you don't make that Ed sound with a very quick tea, cursed. pest. Least least Fast Pass. Let's look at these in a few sentences. An extra feature is instant messaging.

Estimate the costs, there are restraints on astronomical spending. When we have Katie, TT or ft in the middle or end of a word, the tea again will be a clear tea with a strong puff of air. Be careful going from a K to a tea. K is made by touching the back of the tongue to the top of the mouth. Well, tea is quite the opposite. It's made with the front of the tongue touching the top of the mouth.

That means you're going to have to roll from the back of your mouth to the front of your mouth very quickly. It may help to smile on the key so that you can access the back of your mouth with the back of your tongue more easily. Cut, act, contract fact. Self Destruct So you don't want it to sound like self destruct there. I hadn't Okay, I didn't smile. The back of my tongue did not touch the back of the top of my mouth.

I was a little bit lazy with my tongue. Here I'll be lazy again. destruct. Now I'll do it correctly. destruct. Construct, eject, activates.

When you have PT In a word, make sure the T is strong and your tongue moves very quickly to the top of your mouth and very quickly releases accept, abrupt adapt. We need to accept the change and adapt. It was a good attempt They went bankrupt because of corrupt leaders.

The same with ft. Make sure your tea is strong and crispy. It should feel like a snap draft left software facelift. The old software needs a facelift sends me a draft. He plays Minecraft. When you have lt in T or RT at the end of a word, don't make the T so strong and crisp. Instead you'll have a held tea and your tongue will stay at the top of your mouth and not release.

You still need to quickly move the tongue to the top of your mouth so that people can feel the crispness. But you won't release your tongue belt. So I didn't say belt. There's no puff of air at the end. I keep my tongue at the top of my mouth about consult, it ends abruptly because I moved my tongue so quickly to the top of my mouth. Can't won't component abort, alert.

Please consult an adult, you can't hide the component, insert a new line in the code. Notice that when I said code, I stretched out the O before the D, so that it wouldn't sound like code. I did not say insert a new line in the code. insert a new line in the code. So when you have T in the middle of a word, in between two vowels, the T will sound like a fast D. It's also important for this rule that the T is not at the beginning of a stress syllable. If it's at the beginning of a stressed syllable.

It will be a clear T. Notice that these word pairs sound the same ladder ladder. Those T's in between vowels make the t sound like a fast D. And when a D is in the middle of a word, we make a fast D, we don't press the tongue too hard into the top of the mouth. If I say the word dog, I press my tongue tip pretty firmly into the top of my mouth because the D is at the beginning of a word. But when the DS in the middle of a word like ladder, I don't press my tongue, I just brush it. ladder. ladder.

Metal, metal, so it's not metal. There's no actual teeth, just metal. If you have too many sharp teeth in English, you're going to sound too choppy, and eventually you'll sound a little bit annoying to your listeners. Bitter notice I did not say bitter it is not bitter. It is bitter and American English waited not waited but waited waited quantitative here's some it words that have tea in between two vowels and have a fast D as a result, Twitter computer strategy related cities pharmaceutical security probability anytime you have a word that ends in it why like probability or city? That it Why is always going to sound like ID Why is it Sustainability startup.

And startup, the AR before the tea is considered a vowel. So the tea is between vowels startup. Let's try some sentences. Put it in the queue. Here the T and put is between vowels because the next word, it starts with a vowel. So that T input is now going to sound like a fast D, put it in the queue.

I did not say put it in the queue, just put it in the queue. Concentrate on cutting costs. Let's put off the meeting. What if the quality is better? So I didn't say what if the quality is better? I said what if the T at the end of what will sound like a D?

What if the T after n n will be silent if the T is not at the beginning of a stressed syllable. Accounting. We don't say accounting while some people do when they're trying to be too careful. But most people just say accounting interview. We don't say interview. Again if you always put a tee after your end your speech is going to sound too choppy internet interactions international 20 Santa Clara County, the accounting department is holding interviews today.

The advantage of buying in large quantities is cost savings. In the following words, the T is pronounced because it's at the beginning of a stress syllable context. So in context, text is a very important part of the word and the T must be very clear context intake entire and take Now when t is in the middle of a word and before n, something unusual happens, we'll use the same tongue placement to make both the T and the N. So I put the tip of my tongue up at the top of my mouth for the T, but then I hold it there and let the air exit through my nose for the end button. I only moved my tongue once when I said button. I did not say back 10 that would be too choppy, certain eaten. I let the tip of my tongue come up.

And then I keep the tip of the tongue there, and I let air come out my nose, eaten, eaten and you should feel buzzing in your nose. It's still important that the tip of your tongue comes up very quickly for the tea. If it's too slow, we won't recognize that it was supposed to be a tea winner Tea is at the end of a word as in cat. The tongue tip touches the top of the mouth but then stays there and doesn't release. The key is that you need to move your tongue very quickly to the top of the mouth, cat. If I move my tongue too slowly, cat, maybe nobody will hear the tea or realize that I said cat.

Now let's see what happens to the T and D after a vowel. When you have a T at the end of a word, you want the vowel before it to happen very quickly, so that the vibrating vowel does not contaminate the T. But when you have a D at the end of a word, you want to stretch out the vowel spend a little more time on it, so that the voicing and vibration will help make the DD and not a T. Let's try See, seen. So I spent longer saying the second word seed by stretching After he bit been ate a set said, cut, cut pot, pod route. rude about bowed for the oh you sound. Notice that I opened my mouth a lot more on the second word than I did on the first word. That particular vowel changes a lot depending on whether it's before a voiced consonant or a voiceless consonant.

Watch again, about bowed. Now we have some compound words where the first part of the compound word ends in a T. Make sure that's a held t platform. So it's not flat form. I'm not blowing out that T. Output network. He's fixing the network. output is rising.

What platform did you use? Now let's look at tr and Dr. While tr has a T in the spelling, we don't actually say a T, for tr, we actually say ch ER and for Dr. We actually say Jr. So you'll need to round your lips when you make the CH and the J. So, T our sounds like try try try trade transfer trust true transmit arbitrary electronics interest. Travis wishes to transmit data to the central computer.

We need to attract trustworthy partners. You can retrieve your electronic ticket receipts when you have the spelling combination. str do not make The ch sound it's actually str abstract, extra restraints construct stream. One of the tricks here might be to spend more time on the ES. I often notice that students don't spend enough time on the ES. So make sure that there's no air coming out of your mouth on the s. stream.

The words came straight from the abstract. The extra food was distributed among all the guests. He demonstrated how to stream the data streams stream. Now let's look at the Dr. Remember it will sound like a Jr. and you will round your lips for the J. Dr. Dre. It is not Dara Dara drastic draw.

Dream. The cathedral attracts hundreds of visitors a day. The children must be high Did he save the draft on his Android? Make sure you know the past tense rules. How do you know if you need a T sound or a D sound? Let's learn them.

The past tense of verbs that end in t or d have an extra syllable pronounced, ID, pasted, mended, tested. Notice that when I have these two syllables, I don't treat them equally I don't say tested, I say tested. So the first part is more important, and it will be louder and have a higher pitch. tested. avoided, admitted, decided, separated. verbs that end in a voiced consonant or a vowel, simply add on a D sound in the past tense, no extra syllables tried showed changed.

Now change ends in a j nada Tierra de so we don't need to add an extra syllable, it does not change it, it's just changed. So you need to go from the J to the D very quickly with no extra vowels in between changed. verbs that end in a voiceless consonant will have a T ending, past missed, worked, developed. Finally, let's look at the T and D in some it senses, Tom hoped to drastically cut costs. Let's talk about the potential for profit. That website gets a lot of hits.
