These words are pronounced exactly the same way!
Hi everyone! It’s Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. Homophones are words that are pronounced exactly the same. They just have different spellings and different meanings.
Two words today
brews which means beers or um what a witch makes or to make coffee or tea and
Bruise an injury to the body or to someone’s feelings
So to say these words correctly we have four sounds; but we’re going to learn this in three parts. Let’s start with that the BR combination. So we’re going to think about that R sound first.Stay with me here, think about the r sound, get your tongue in the spot where you would make your R sound. So I make my R sound with the tip of my tongue down and the back of my tongue pulled high up. Some people flip the tip of the tongue back. Whatever you do is fine just get your tongue there and ready. Close your lips for the B and then as you open your lips. Move them to a square tense shape. Your tongue is already in the spot so you should be all set.
Next pucker those lips for that oo and then pull your lips back, kind of into a smiling shape, as your tongue tip stays behind the top front teeth that is not touching. And you are going to say that z sound – Z. Air is going to move out of your mouth for that Z and your voice box is on and moving for that Z. You do have options. The tip of your tongue could be behind your top teeth or slightly pointed down. Again it is just not touching.
Let’s put that all together
bruise brews bruise brew bruise brews
And now for a sentence:
He fell down and got a bruise because he drank too many Brews.
